Outdoor power equipment maker Brinly-Hardy plans to expand its plant in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
One Southern Indiana, an economic development organization, coordinated an appearance by Brinly-Hardy officials before the Jeffersonville Redevelopment Commission on April 28 to determine the company’s eligibility for tax incentives, which can be requested at a City Council meeting on May 5, 2014.
Brinly-Hardy hopes to invest as much as $1,500,000 to improve its existing 240,000 square-foot facility and $3,525,000 on equipment for the facility. The company will also hire up to 44 new employees by 2015.
“We purchased the land and building in 2000 with plans to expand,” said Jane Hardy, Brinly-Hardy CEO. “Now is the time for us to do that.”
Brinly-Hardy, founded in 1839, manufactures light commercial lawn and garden equipment such as lawn aerators, lawn dethatchers, lawn vacuums, and lawn sprayers. The company is a certified women’s business enterprise. It distributes products to regional chain stores and large home improvement centers in the United States.
One Southern Indiana is the Economic Development Council and Chamber of Commerce for Clark and Floyd Counties on the Indiana side of the Louisville, Kentucky metro area.
