According to the statement, the company, which replicates DVDs, compact discs (CDs) and flash drives will invest more than $2 million to expand production at its 100,000 square-foot manufacturing facility on Indianapolis’ east side.
“World Media Group’s expansion brings welcomed opportunities to central Indiana and we look forward to partnering with them as they continue to grow,” said Mitch Roob, Secretary of Commerce and chief executive officer of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
World Media Group, which employs more than 130 associates at its Indianapolis headquarters, plans to begin hiring additional manufacturing associates as facility upgrades are completed at the site.
“Indiana and more specifically, Indianapolis made strategic sense for the expansion of our manufacturing process because of this centralized location. We can reach 70 percent of the United States and Canada in one day’s drive,” said Josh Mellentine, vice president of operations at World Media Group.
Founded in 1988, World Media Group employs nearly 150 at production centers in Nashville, Columbus, Ohio, Dallas, and New York City. The company also operates a Creative Card Group, which produces and programs plastic cards for uses including gift cards, loyalty cards and hotel room keys.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered World Media Group up to $100,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $5,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. The city of Indianapolis will provide hiring assistance at the request of Indianapolis Economic Development Inc.
“We are excited World Media Group is growing and has chosen to add more jobs in Indianapolis. Once again, our location and lower business costs have made our city a strategic business choice. We wish World Media Group continued success here,” said Mayor Greg Ballard.
