$4M Project Creating 110 Jobs

Westfield Mayor Andy Cook and executives with Browning Chapman, LLC, a specialty contracting firm, announced the Indianapolis-based company will relocate its headquarters and warehousing facility to Westfield.

“I am thrilled to welcome Browning Chapman to Westfield,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “With $6.5 million in annual salaries projected from this firm, I can assuredly say that these are quality jobs in a quality community. This is proof that our strategy of bringing good jobs to Westfield is working because we are building a community where businesses and families want to be.

“The BC team is extremely excited to be joining the Westfield business community,” said Allan Browning, President of Browning Chapman, LLC. “When Gordon Chapman and I began searching for our new headquarters location, we were immediately attracted to the Westfield area. Recent upgrades to the US 31 corridor allow for convenient access to Indianapolis and surrounding communities, while amenities such as the Monon Trail and Grand Park offer unique recreational opportunities. We think Westfield is the perfect location for our business and our employees.”

On Monday, the Westfield City Council approved a resolution granting an eight-year real property tax abatement for a new Browning Chapman headquarters in Westfield. The abatement will be phased-in at 10 percent per year. The $4 million project is projected to create 110 new jobs.

The specialty contracting company is relocating its current headquarters from Crosspoint Business Park in Indianapolis. The 67,000-square-foot building will be located in Westfield’s Northpoint Business Park adjacent to the Bastian Solutions advanced manufacturing facility.

Construction is expected to begin in late summer of 2019, with a scheduled completion date of late spring of 2020.
