The Brookfield Group

CARMEL - The Brookfield Group, a full-service technology company, will expand its operations in central Indiana, investing in its Carmel headquarters and downtown Indianapolis data center. As part of its growth, the company plans to create up to 31 new high-wage jobs by 2021.

"The Brookfield Group is the perfect example of how Indiana's tech community continues to invest in itself an support the development of a growing, thriving industry ecosystem," said Elaine Bedel, president of the IEDC. "Paired with the state's robust business climate and local communities' dedication to innovation, it's clear that Indiana is primed to be the ideal Midwestern home for tech, helping entrepreneurs propel their ideas and business plans to the next level."

The company, which specializes in helping small businesses customize their technology systems, will invest $7 million to enhance its central Indiana operations, installing high-availability voice and data systems, on-demand storage, cloud failover systems and complete scalable virtual systems at its 11,000-square-foot headquarters at 12400 N. Meridian St. in Carmel. It addition, The Brookfield Group will update its downtown Indianapolis data center to accommodate the growing demand for its voice and data cloud services. Over the past five years, the company’s revenue has grown by 35 percent annually as the demand for its IT products – including hosted private cloud services, Office 365, hosted voice services and managed IT services – continues to grow.
In addition to investing in its operations, The Brookfield Group has also partnered with Indianapolis-based The Speak Easy to open a 10,000-square-foot co-working space in the same building as its headquarters. Platform 24, which officially opened today, is Carmel’s first co-working space and will allow The Brookfield Group to help support other innovators and entrepreneurs in the community.
“Carmel, Indiana, has been home for The Brookfield Group for 30 years,” said Fadi Abdallah, founder and chief executive officer of The Brookfield Group. “Giving back to the community that supported you is the right thing to do. Carmel is a growing community and The Brookfield Group is dedicated to its success.”
The Brookfield Group, which also has offices in St. Louis and Glasgow, Scotland, employs nearly 40 full-time associates in Indiana and plans to add 31 new positions in in both Carmel and Indianapolis. These positions are expected to pay an average wage nearly 50 percent higher than the state average wage.
