INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 16, 2015) – Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann joined iLAB, a worldwide provider of software quality assurance and performance testing products, today to announce the company’s plans to expand its North American headquarters here, creating up to 100 new jobs by 2019.

The Johannesburg, South Africa-based company will invest $1.49 million to lease and equip its new 4,000-square-foot office at the Chase Circle building in downtown Indianapolis. In July, the company moved into its new office, quadrupling its footprint with plans to locate 80 new jobs at the company’s North American headquarters. iLAB will also hire an additional 20 associates to be based around the state, serving clients in Fort Wayne, South Bend, Gary and Evansville.

“Business growth and development in the tech sector is one of the major reasons why we are experiencing record Hoosier employment numbers,” said Ellspermann. “I applaud iLAB for choosing to grow their business in a state that works. Today we celebrate Indiana’s international reputation as a great place for businesses to start, expand and prosper.”

“We’ve seen fantastic growth over the last five years, expanding our customer base through strategic partnerships with the world’s most respected names in technology,” said Gerry Bailey, managing director for iLAB in North America. “Indianapolis has served as an exceptional launch platform for our North American operations and a key factor in fueling our growth strategy across the globe by adding 100 more employees over the next five years.”
