Indianapolis-based Delco Foods of Indiana is making plans to open a cheese-processing, printing and warehouse facility in Whitestown that will have more than 130 employees. The Italian and specialty foods distributor plans to spend more than $5 million to equip a new, 150,000-square-foot building it will lease at the intersection of Perry Worth Road and E. County Road 500 S., east of Interstate 65.

Delco Foods, a 62-year-old, family-owned company, said it intends to hire 132 employees for the facility by 2024 who will earn an average wage of $26 an hour. More than 110 of those employees would be hired by the end of 2020. The Boone County Economic Development Corp. said the company would continue its Indianapolis operations at 4850 W. 78th St. on the city's northwest side after opening the new facility. The company is out of expansion space at the site, which it opened in 2001.
