White Lodging Services to expand

I keep forgetting to post this article to the blog.  It was in last Friday’s Journal Gazette, page 1E.

Merrillville firm to expand, hire 100

White Lodging Services has announced a headquarters expansion and renovation that could create 100 jobs by 2012.

The company plans to spend more than $4 million to renovate two buildings and create a corporate headquarters of more than 60,000 square feet.  It currently employs 116 at a leased headquarters in Merrillville.

White Lodging develops and manages 124 hotels in 14 states.  State officials said in a statement Thursday that the company will hire vice presidents, senior directors and managers and operations staff this year.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered up to $1.5 million in tax credits and $92,000 in training grants for the expansion.

White Lodging Services is the developer of the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in the Harrison Square development.
