INDIANAPOLIS (May 25, 2017) – Galvin Technologies, which helps its clients integrate the Salesforce platform into their operations, announced plans to expand its operations in central Indiana. As part of its growth, the company plans to create up to 37 new, high-wage jobs by 2022.
“Salesforce’s decision last year to dramatically grow its presence in Indiana is having an impact here beyond even the new 800 tech jobs the company is adding,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “In addition to our affordable business climate and supportive business community, Salesforce’s commitment to Indiana sent a signal that Indiana is a leading tech hub and that is providing tech and Salesforce-centered companies like Galvin Technologies another motivation to pick Indiana for their growth.”
Galvin Technologies will invest $609,050 into its operations, expanding its office and investing in new technology to support its quickly-growing roster of clients throughout the Midwest. Currently functioning at capacity, the company operates at a 3,000-square-foot office at 4622 W. 72nd St. on Indianapolis’ northwest side and plans to move into a larger office in central Indiana by the beginning of next year.
The company’s growth follows Salesforce’s announcement last year that it planned to expand its regional headquarters in Indianapolis. The company, which celebrated the grand opening of Salesforce Tower Indianapolis last week, plans to add 800 new high-wage jobs over the next few years.
Galvin Technologies was founded by Gary Galvin in 2004 shortly after he moved from Chicago to Indianapolis. Originally launched as a website development company, Galvin Technologies transitioned into a full-service Salesforce integrator last year, helping companies improve their sales, operations, customer service and marketing with Salesforce’s growing platform.
“When my family moved to Indiana to pursue career growth opportunities, at the time I wasn’t too familiar with Indiana’s business environment,” said Galvin. “But after being in Indiana for a year and a half there was a clear opportunity to finally start the company and Indianapolis very quickly wrapped its arms around the business and my family, allowing us to quickly grow and thrive here.”
Galvin Technologies currently employs 12 full-time associates and is now ramping up its hiring to bring on additional Salesforce consultants, administrators and developers, as well as project managers and sales executives. These positions are expected to pay an average wage that is more than double the state average wage. Interested applicants may apply through the company’s careers page.
As a partner in helping its clients use cloud consulting tools to meet their business needs, Galvin Technologies serves companies when they are working to move their applications and processes onto the Salesforce platform. This service helps its clients improve their sales processes, allowing them to understand and use Salesforce to drive company projects and initiatives.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered Galvin Technologies Inc. up to $750,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $75,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives.
Today’s announcement marks the latest milestone of growth for Indiana’s tech industry. Technology jobs in central Indiana grew at a rate of 27.9 percent between 2013 and 2015, which is more than double the U.S. average and ranks No. 5 in the nation (CBRE). The Indianapolis-area metro has been ranked No. 2 in the nation for tech grads (DataFox), No. 5 for women for women in tech (Fast Company) and No. 9 for creating the most tech jobs (Forbes).
