Hangzhou Hidea Power Machinery Co., Ltd, a Chinese manufacturer of outboard engines and motors, announced today the opening of its first distribution center in the United States.
“As a logistics hub, central Indiana offers us the ability to reach more of our customers and dealers to build win-win partnerships,” said Jackie Jiao, Operations Manager of Hidea. “We’re very appreciative of the welcoming environment and are grateful to have local and regional support.”
The company, headquartered in Indiana’s sister state Zhejiang, will invest approximately $500,000 to lease and equip the distribution center located at 1630 E. Northfield Drive. As part of the investment, Hidea will hire warehouse technicians and marketing associates for its new facility. Interested applicants can apply directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We’re very happy to welcome Hidea to the Hoosier State,” said Colin Renk, executive director of the America China Society of Indiana. “Indiana has developed a rich, long-standing relationship with China and we’re committed to creating more mutually beneficial opportunities in the future.”
In August, Governor Eric Holcomb welcomed Zhejiang Party Secretary Che Jun to Indiana to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Indiana’s sister state relationship with Zhejiang Province. As part of the event, an MOU was signed to strengthen business and economic ties between the two states.
“Brownsburg is excited to welcome Hidea to our community as we begin to grow our international business connections with Zhejiang Province,” said Ashley Bacsu, Brownsburg Town Council President. “We are very pleased to be selected for the first logistics and distribution center for Hidea in the United States.”
