Wilcox Environmental Engineering, Inc. moved into its new headquarters in the expanded and renovated Rosner building on Main Street Speedway this March. The new location will fulfill staffing needs for Wilcox’s continuing growth after the company has nearly doubled its roster from approximately 30 employees to more than 50 employees across three states.
“Wilcox is proud to be located in an area that is experiencing such amazing development, with which we have been privileged to assist Speedway for several years,” said Chris Bonniwell, President of Wilcox Environmental Engineering. “Our exciting new facility gives our talented staff a vibrant work environment with all the tools they need to excel, fosters collaboration and communication, and provides the space and infrastructure to support our continuing growth.”
The Rosner building at the intersection of 16th Street and Main Street (1552 Main St, Suite 100 Speedway, IN 46224) serves as the oldest building on the historic street with 16,000 square feet of space. Wilcox will utilize almost 13,000 square feet, encompassing two floors with a modern, open concept office setting and a 1,300 square foot employee lounge and kitchen. The lounge, located on the first floor, showcases restored original hardwood flooring, indoor and outdoor seating for 50 people, kitchen and bar, media/gaming area, and coffee station. During planning for renovation and construction, Wilcox was excited to preserve Rosner’s history by reusing the original bricks, windows and flooring.
“We congratulate Wilcox Environmental on relocating in the historic Rosner Building on Main Street in Speedway,” said Angela Cole, president, Speedway Chamber of Commerce. “It is fitting that an organization so vital to the redevelopment of Speedway occupy this important location. When the Redevelopment Commission began the process of revitalizing this area, there were significant environmental issues to address. Wilcox Environmental played a key role in working with the Speedway Redevelopment Commission to transform the area and create a vibrant business community.”
“We are thrilled to have a community focused company in Speedway,” said Vince Noblet, president of the Speedway Redevelopment Commission. “The town has done business a long time with Wilcox Environmental and has been a strong partner in solving environmental problems related to redevelopment.”
Wilcox actively services client investigation and remediation needs in Indiana, Wisconsin,
Ohio, Kentucky and Illinois. Combined capabilities of the company’s Investigation / Remediation and Air Analysis divisions currently service clients in more than 15 states.
An official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the new location on Tuesday, April 18 at 10 a.m. with the Speedway Redevelopment Commission and Speedway Chamber of Commerce.
