Begun in 1913 as a family-owned transportation business, Perkins Specialized Transportation has recently decided to begin a new business era, headquartered in Saxony Corporate Campus in Noblesville.

The company has acquired property to build a new 40,000-square-foot, single-story building which spans eight acres on the north side of Exit 10 of I-69 and which is the most recent progress to the Noblesville portion of Saxony, a $500 million mixed-use development.  The building, which nearly doubles the size of their current location, is being constructed by Meyer Najem Construction, a local company based in Fishers.

Perkins, a national long-haul trucking company presently headquartered at 5502 W. 73rd Street in Park 100, will move its 70 to 75 employees to its new location complete with training rooms and other amenities.

Greg Maiers, Chief Operating Officer for Perkins, said Monday, “Our new corporate headquarters will accommodate our company’s thriving growth plans,” which could include further growth in the future.

Perkins will join an increasing roster of companies populating Saxony, including biomedical manufacturer Helmer, Inc.; Illinois-based Verus Partners, an industrial real estate developer; Wesleyan Church Foundation; Star Financial Bank; Community Health Network; and the Play School at Saxony.

Although particulars are yet undisclosed, Republic Development, the mastermind developer behind Saxony, has filed plans with Noblesville for construction of yet another office building, indicating another company is attracted to Saxony.

Noblesville is campaigning new companies to settle in Saxony, urging that Saxony is an alluring center with a variety of amenities – from houses and townhomes to restaurants, a new mall, corporate offices, and warehouses.
