Pharmacy Fulfillment Solutions Provider iA to Open Global HQ in Indiana

iA, a provider of software-enabled pharmacy fulfillment solutions, announced plans today to open the company’s global headquarters in central Indiana. iA’s new global headquarters already employs 20 Indianapolis-based employees, including iA executive leadership team members. iA plans to create up to an additional 420 new, high-wage jobs in central Indiana by the end of 2023. 

"With a thriving tech ecosystem and history of life sciences excellence, Indiana is the perfect place for companies like iA to establish its home base," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "We're excited iA has chosen to grow in Indiana and create hundreds of high-wage jobs for Hoosiers.”

iA, which provides pharmacy automation solutions utilizing software-enabled pharmacy fulfillment solutions to the retail, hospital, federal health care and mail-order pharmacy markets, is making a significant investment to lease, renovate and equip the 15th floor of 8888 Keystone Crossing in Indianapolis, which will house iA’s corporate operations. iA plans to maintain its national office in Johnson City, New York, where it was founded as Innovation Associates in 1974.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Innovation Associates (dba iA) up to $8 million in conditional tax credits based on the company's plans to create up to 440 new jobs by the end of 2023. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of Develop Indy, a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
