Technology Solutions makes medical software and archery equipment.

ASHLEY, Ind. (WANE)  A company that specializes in medical software and archery equipment will be expanding its operations in Steuben County with plans to add up to 26 new jobs by 2016.

Technology Solutions, Inc., will invest $1.89 million to purchase, renovate and equip a 20,280 square-foot facility at 101 Shea Drive in Ashley. The facility is expected to begin operations by this summer.

The company, which currently employs 16 full-time Indiana associates, plans to begin hiring social marketers, graphic designers, animators, programmers, sales representatives and warehouse personnel in the coming months. Interested applicants may apply through WorkOne Northeast in Auburn, Ind. or at IndianaCareerConnect.com.

“We chose Indiana over Ohio, where several of our major suppliers are located, primarily because of Indiana’s low-tax business environment, the proximity to our current staff and, with the number of higher learning institutions nearby, the expectation of a well-trained workforce that will help us achieve our goals,” said John Jackson, president of Technology Solutions. “We are thankful for the service we have already received from Indiana as well as local agencies and look forward to our continued working partnerships.”

Founded in 1998, Technology Solutions, Inc. is the maker of Intelicode®, software for auditing medical records that is used by both individuals and large organizations. The company also specializes in archery equipment, with its Instinct Archery™ line of traditional archery equipment. Instinct Archery™ is also the creator of Archery Tag®, an archery game utilizing foam-tipped arrows, and S.A.F.E. Archery™, a foam-tipped retail archery line. With its growth, the company will continue to utilize Rise, Inc. for product assembly, an Angola, Ind.-based nonprofit agency that provides employment training and rehabilitation services for individuals with disabilities.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Technology Solutions, Inc. up to $125,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $75,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The town of Ashley approved additional incentives at the request of the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation.
