$8M Facility Coming to Lanesville Business Park

J.C. Moag, announced plans to relocate and expand their facility in the Lanesville Business Park, bringing 30 jobs to Harrison County and up to an additional 20 jobs by 2021.

“We are excited to welcome J. C. Moag to Harrison County. Their initial distribution warehouse and eventual high-tech manufacturing facility will result in new jobs offering very competitive wages and long-term stability,” said Gary Davis, Chair of the Harrison County Council.

The company will invest a projected $8 million to build and equip a 50,000 square foot facility in the Lanesville Business Park where Moag has purchased 7 acres from the Harrison County Economic Development Corporation. Groundbreaking for the project is scheduled June 14, 2018 with a targeted occupancy of spring, 2019.

“Indiana’s pro-growth business environment and skilled workforce continue to create a winning solution for companies like J.C. Moag,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “As the company expands its footprint in Indiana, we look forward to witnessing the new jobs they create for hardworking Hoosiers. In return, we’ll continue to develop the tools businesses need to grow with confidence.”

C. Moag began in 1946 as a designer and distributor of merchandising hardware and glass and wood displays for department stores and retailers. Currently, they also fabricate glass for furniture, retail store fixtures, office space, and bath and shower enclosures. Additionally, they fabricate architectural glass and glass specific to the hospitality industry.

“JC Moag Corporation is excited to have chosen the Lanesville Business Park as our future home. With easy access and visibility to Interstate 64 the Lanesville Business Park was the perfect solution for the growth and expansion of our glass tempering and fabrication services. Since we currently serve customers along the I-64 corridor in Southern Indiana, our position just off the highway in Lanesville will allow us to provide better service to our growing customer base. We eagerly await becoming part of Harrison County and partnering with the Economic Development Corp to serve and grow with the Lanesville community”, said Cameron Moag, the Company President. The company has already committed to support the efforts of the EDC to become a Work Ready Community and will recognize the National Career Readiness Certificate in their hiring procedures.

The IEDC offered J.C. Moag Corporation up to $165,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $24,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning that until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.

Harrison County Economic Development Corporation committed to J.C. Moag additional job training incentives of $3000 per new job created in the first 3 years of operation up to a total of $150,000.

Kenny Saulman, President of the Harrison County Commissioners said, “The Lanesville interchange area has always held great promise for business growth in our county and now the interest shown by J.C. Moag to locate here is a testimony to that. The commitment made by the Harrison County Economic Development Corp to purchase the property and the support of the County to establish the infrastructure there is now making the Lanesville Business Park a reality.”
