Bastian Solutions

Governor Eric J. Holcomb and Westfield Mayor Andy Cook joined executives from Bastian Solutions, a global systems integrator and consulting firm that was recently acquired by Toyota Advanced Logistics, a subsidiary of Japan-based Toyota Industries Corporation, as the company announced plans to build a new manufacturing center in Hamilton County, creating up to 87 new, high-wage jobs by 2020.




"Indiana's pro-business reputation continues to be heard loud and clear and across the globe," Governor Holcomb said. "That is the message we heard in Japan last month while meeting with top businesses like Toyota Industries, and I am excited to join Bastian Solutions today as we celebrate the continued impact that global firms have on the state's economy and Hoosier jobs."

 


The company, which provides material handling and robotic automation for large scale product distribution, will invest more than $8 million to construct a 90,000-square-foot manufacturing center near 196th Street and U.S. Highway 31 in Westfield. The facility will house 10,000 square feet of office space as well as the company's growing advanced manufacturing operations, which will utilize the Toyota Production System to reduce waste in the production environment and ensure quality and efficiency throughout the manufacturing process.  With construction expected to begin in November, Bastian Solutions plans to begin operations early next year, shipping its first round of products in June.

Bastian Solutions employs more than 600 associates worldwide, including 200 associates across its Indiana manufacturing and sales offices in Evansville, Fort Wayne, Greenfield and its corporate headquarters in Indianapolis. With its growth, the company will begin to hire for manufacturing and engineering positions for its Westfield site at the beginning of 2018. Interested applicants may apply online.  

Toyota Advanced Logistics and Bastian Solutions are honored to join the Westfield community, and we look forward to building a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that will not only provide jobs but also become a catalyst for the local economy," said Michael Romano, president of Toyota Advanced Logistics. “Toyota has a long history in Indiana, and we hope to utilize that experience to continue growing, innovating and making the state a globally recognized center for advanced manufacturing.”
