HY-PRO Filtration Bringing 107 Jobs to Anderson

By Rick Yencer

ANDERSON, IN -  A growing Fishers industrial filtration operation is moving up Interstate 69 to the Flagship Technology Park, making a $10.5 million investment and creating 107 jobs.

  HY-PRO Filtration President Larry Hoeg and his son, Aaron, operations manager, found the move easy, given Anderson is more Indy Metro like Fishers and Pendleton, besides having a skilled workforce from the former days of General Motors dominance with Delco and Guide Lamp.

 And Mayor Kevin Smith, just re-elected last November, could not be happier with the ninth new company coming to Anderson in 10 months to join Nestle's and that big attraction, Hoosier Park, that also is just off I-69.

 More than 50 people gathered at Anderson City Hall Tuesday to laud the HY-PRO move announced this week.Over the next three years, the company will invest $10.5 million to build a new headquarters and manufacturing facility to build what Aaron Hoeg calls "their stuff." The average pay of jobs is $21 an hour.

 And that stuff is a wide range of filtration products for hydraulic and lubricating oils and diesel fuel for heavy equipment and industrial customers around the globe. And the family-owned company does its own research and design of its stuff.

 Larry Hoeg was excited to be part of the community's high energy economic development led by Greg Winkler and Smith's administration.

 "We talked to several communities about relocating our operation and I can confidently say that Anderson understands what it takes to create an environment where manufacturers can flourish," said Hoeg.

 His son talked about the skilled workforce and proximity to its current location that represented the same culture as the booming community of Fishers. And it is unique that Fishers businesses that are either landlocked or looking for more space are looking up the interstate to places like Anderson that have available land and incentives.

 Anderson is offering $1.9 million in tax increment financing and a ready to build on site.

 Smith credited Anderson's development boom to a skilled GM workforce besides job training with Ivy Tech Community College besides a community working together to improve the economy and quality of life.

 It also does not hurt that the interstate is a bit closer, besides the community being closer to Indianapolis and government working for the people.

 HY-PRO will be looking for some engineers and other technical help when it expands and opens the new facility in 2013. Their website at HY-Pro Filtration and address at 12955 Ford Drive, Fishers, IN, 46038, is the contact.

I think it is better news for the existing employees at said enterprise.  They can keep their job and home.  It is also good for the company.  Hell save 1.8M in taxes and get to keep their existing employee base.

They never said in the article that they were expandin.  They only said moving.

Most if not all employees will be commuting.

I wasn't there, but AFAIK, it will be 107 new jobs created ... I'll ask Yencer next time I talk to him.

 So 55 new jobs that pay on average $21.00 per hour plus benifits. Pretty good. I also read that several of the current employees live in Madison County so maybe that will lessen their commute time.

I agree Ballguy, my commute is longer than that.  Also, if anybody in Anderson knows of anybody at the facility, get them to agree that you will use them as a reference.  A lot of jobs are usually filled by internal references.  Good Luck Anderson

 I can tell you all about commuting. 55 miles 1 way 5-6 days per week. Done it for 4 years this time and 10 years when I worked in Kokomo.

 I didn't really pay attention to the contact reference provided in the paper as I am happy with my job so I am not sure what skills they are looking for to fill their positions. For the money I assume some mechanical skills are needed.
