COLUMBUS, IN -- AXISCADES, an India-based engineering company that recently announced its plans to enter North America with headquarters in Columbus, Ind., believes the talent in the state will lead to hundreds of jobs in the next few years.

Sudhakar Gande, vice Chair of Bengaluru-based AXISCADES, said the company will “leverage the availability of skilled engineering talent in Indiana” to fill an expected 500 openings by 2023.

The company expects to create up to 100 jobs within the first year of operation as part of a $10 million investment. The company says it also plans to establish satellite offices throughout the state for customer-focused engineering teams, according to the report.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says AXISCADES will initially lease space at 810 Brown Street in Columbus that will serve as its North American headquarters and house management functions, according to an Inside Indiana Business report.

"The advanced manufacturing and high technology environment in Indiana also provides a key element in our selection," Gande said in a news release. "We are excited to leverage the availability of skilled engineering talent in Indiana as well as the state’s strong education system to meet the growing skill demands of the future."

AXISCADES provides product engineering solutions for companies in the aerospace, defense, heavy engineering, automotive, energy, medical and health care sectors. The company will also locate engineering associates at its clients' facilities throughout the state.

IEDC is planning to offer the company up to $4.3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $500,000 in training grants. An additional $1 million in incentives will also be considered to support infrastructure needs for the project. The city of Columbus has offered up to $50,000 in performance-based incentives as well.


"We are exceptionally pleased to welcome India-based AXISCADES and their team members to Columbus, and we look forward to supporting their success," said Columbus Mayor Jim Lienhoop in the report.

The commitment by AXISCADES to locate its North American headquarters in Indiana was announced Nov. 2 during Governor Eric Holcomb's economic development trip to India.
