Laser Business Chooses Brownsburg, $1.3M Investment

SurClean, Inc. will be calling Brownsburg, Indiana home to its woman-owned laser technology business. SurClean brings its years of laser industry expertise to solve coating removal challenges, from the industrial to the military.

Susan L. Sprentall, President and CEO of SurClean, described her laser technology saying, “Our laser system replaces current methods of chemical, abrasive, and water blasting. Laser ablation, also known as laser surface prep, is an emerging technology offering a very precise, safe, energy-efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly way to maintain large assets. This technology is being driven by the U.S. Department of Defense and supported by BlueTech and CleanTech organizations.”

Ms. Sprentall selected Indiana and specifically Brownsburg as the location of her company based on its proximity to major universities, the Indianapolis International Airport, and Department of Defense research centers, combined with the high quality of life and strong local community support.

“With our strong manufacturing sector and full range of defense assets, Indiana is the perfect place for SurClean to call home,” said Interim Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Staton. “Not only is SurClean’s innovative technology strengthening Indiana’s economy, it’s also providing Hoosiers with the jobs of tomorrow.”

“We are elated to welcome SurClean, Inc. to Brownsburg,” said Brownsburg Town Council President, Travis Tschaenn. “SurClean brings diversity and good-paying jobs to our local economy. We also welcome the addition of another woman-owned business to our community.”

SurClean will be located in Brownsburg, Indiana, at 475 Northpoint Circle, #400. Ms. Sprentall plans to invest approximately $1.3 million in personal property equipment and has projected the creation of 35 jobs at an average of $28.00 per hour.

The Town of Brownsburg has offered up to $15,000 in lease assistance through its unique Tenant Lease Assistance Incentive program.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered SurClean Inc. up to $350,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s plans to create up to 35 new jobs by the end of 2024. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired.
