NAPA Balkamp, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company, will move its corporate headquarters from its current location on South Holt Road in Indianapolis to Plainfield. The relocation will take place at the end of this year and bring around 190 highly-paid headquarters employees to the former Galyan’s headquarter’s building, 2601 Stout Heritage Parkway, Plainfield.
“We are delighted to welcome the NAPA Balkamp headquarters to Plainfield,” said Robin Brandgard, Town Council President. “They are an excellent company, and we already have a great relationship with them. Their Plainfield distribution center, which is located in our Airwest Business Park, has long been a source of good, high-quality jobs. Locating their headquarters is here is a sign that they recognize Plainfield has the kind of amenities people are looking for. With their headquarters located in the Perry Crossing district, they’ll have housing, shopping, restaurants, and entertainment venues all within walking distance.”
Town Manager Andrew Klinger emphasized the future Plainfield sees in Balkamp. “We know they have plans to grow the business and expect they will be adding more employees to their headquarters going forward. We are confident their employees will find Plainfield a great place to work, live and raise a family.”
Plainfield is internationally known as a logistics hub. With more than 40 million square feet of warehouse and industrial space under roof, the Town has a reputation for well-managed, attractive business parks and a pro-business attitude. “Many of our warehouses incorporate Class A office space within them and house professionals in disciplines like human resources, marketing, and information technology,” Klinger added. “The demand for Class A office space is picking up in Plainfield as well. Developers are showing interest in finding additional land for offices. We have the infrastructure in place, including high-speed fiber, to fit the needs of modern office buildings.”
