Hendricks County, Indiana has become a hotbed for companies bringing innovation to healthcare products and delivery. Local companies in the biomedical sector have drawn international attention, and a recent BioCrossroads report finds that Indiana’s life sciences exports amount to $9.8 billion, the second highest in the nation. That’s no surprise when you consider the talent generated by the state’s world-class universities and research partnerships, along with Indiana’s pro-business attitudes and sound fiscal policy. Companies in the global biomedical marketplace see our state as a major contributor to their success.
That strength in life sciences gives central Indiana an extensive workforce of highly trained and skilled people who know healthcare and allied fields such as food, biotechnology, medical devices, biopharma, animal health, and other sectors that depend upon rigorous research and development. Local schools support that workforce with classes that introduce students to these opportunities, such as Project Lead the Way’s biomedical program.
These innovative companies also appreciate the low cost of doing business in Hendricks County, along with access to global shipping through Indianapolis International Airport, and a desirable and affordable quality of life that makes it easy to live where you work. New and relocating biomedical companies can take advantage of state and local incentives such as loans and lease assistance programs.
