Medical device facility to bring 450 jobsOctober 30, 2019
By The Associated Press
WESTFIELD — Health care company Abbott is planning a $37 million medical device production facility in central Indiana.
The Indianapolis Star reports Tuesday that 450 jobs are expected to be created at the 120,000-square-foot (11,148-square-meter) facility in Westfield's NorthPoint Industrial Park.
Construction is to begin later this year, with operations expected to start by the end of 2021.
Indiana's Economic Development Corp. has offered Abbott up to $3.5 million in conditional tax credits and up to $1 million in training grants. Westfield is providing a 10-year property tax abatement.
Westfield Mayor Andy Cook says the city has "worked hard to attract diverse businesses" and "the addition of a Fortune 500 health care company, like Abbott, is a big win not only for Westfield but for the state of Indiana."
