HANCOCK COUNTY – A building materials supplier, producer and construction services company founded in Greenfield over 75 years ago is building a new corporate headquarters in Carmel.

Irving Materials, Inc. was founded in Greenfield in 1946 and has been headquartered at 8032 Ind. 9 north of the city since 1962. The company recently announced plans in a news release to buy land and build a new corporate headquarters near Meridian and 111th streets in Carmel.

Plans filed with the city of Carmel indicate IMI’s new four-story, approximately 64,450-square-foot office building with covered parking is going on a 19-acre property near the southeast corner of Illinois and West 111th streets. Plans also show two future developments on the site south of the headquarters. Groundbreaking is scheduled for later this year, according to the news release.

The new corporate headquarters is central to the company’s continued growth plans, the release continues.

“The headquarters’ relocation and expansion will provide the infrastructure we need to support our almost 4,000 employees and our expanding footprint,” IMI president and CEO Pete Lyons said in the release.

The company’s current headquarters is about 11,300 square feet, according to Hancock County property records.

IMI employs Hoosiers in 86 of Indiana’s 92 counties, according to the news release, which adds the company also operates in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. The company did not say how many employees would be moved from Greenfield to Carmel.

IMI is a supplier and producer of aggregates, ready-mix concrete and asphalt. The company’s construction divisions, E&B Paving and Specialties Company, deliver site development, heavy highway and civil construction services.
