According to a news release from One Southern Indiana, Brinly-Hardy, which designs, builds and distributes lawn and garden equipment, could add as many as 44 employees and invest more than $5 million at its Southern Indiana operations.
The plan calls for Brinly-Hardy to invest $1.5 million to improve its existing 240,000 square-foot facility and $3.53 for equipment at that facility, 3230 Industrial Parkway.
The Jeffersonville Redevelopment Commission today voted that the project would be eligible for tax abatements from the city, and Brinly-Hardy is expected to request those incentives at a Jeffersonville City Council meeting on May 5.
“We’ve been so happy with our site here in Southern Indiana,” Brinly-Hardy CEO Jane Hardy said in the release. “We purchased the land and building in 2000 with plans to expand. Now is the time for us to do that. We are thrilled our growth demands it, especially in our 175th year of business.”
