COLUMBUS, Ind. – TPS Industrial Services, an integrated logistics solution provider, announced plans today to expand its headquarters in Indiana, creating up to 61 new jobs by 2020.

Established in 2014 with a single truck and driver, the certified women- and minority-owned business has grown significantly in the last two years and currently employs 15 full-time Hoosiers, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. said in a press release.

The company, which has already hired six full-time employees toward its goal of 61, plans to immediately hire four more full-time positions and will begin hiring for CDL drivers, dispatchers and sales executives in the next six months, the Economic Development Corp. said. The new positions are expected to pay salaries 25 percent higher than the state’s average wage, the agency said.

TPS will invest nearly $3.5 million over the next two years, with plans to construct a new headquarters in Bartholomew County, the agency said. The company’s new terminal will expand TPS’ headquarters footprint by 50,000 square feet and also allow the company to house its distribution and fulfillment center on site.
