Ekos Window + Wall LLC (EWW)

The founders of Reflection Window + Wall, LLC (RWW), a national architectural building enclosure company headquartered in Chicago, announced plans today to establish a new subsidiary in Indiana to support its growing Midwest operations. The new company, Ekos Window + Wall LLC (EWW), plans to create up to 112 new Hoosier jobs over the next few years.

"Companies like Ekos Window + Wall choosing Indiana to set up shop is a true reflection of our state's top-ranked business climate," said Gov. Eric J. Holcomb. "Indiana is the strongest manufacturing state in the nation, and I am truly grateful that with a world of options, Ekos chose Indiana to open the window to their future."

EWW, which is working to finalize its site location, is investing approximately $9.3 million to establish its Indiana operations, building and equipping a 120,000-square-foot facility in Porter County. The facility will house office space and operations for the company’s new patent pending glass curtain wall product. The company expects construction to begin early next year and be complete by Q4 2021.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered Ekos Window + Wall LLC up to $1.25 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. The IEDC also offered up to $120,000 in conditional tax credits from the Hoosier Business Investment (HBI) tax credit program based on the company’s planned capital investment in Indiana. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired and investments are made.
