Sister technology, software and communications companies to occupy renovated historic building
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Dec. 18, 2012) — Two companies, Indatus and Mocura, both under the ownership of ICIM Corporation, plan to establish headquarters on 118 East Main Street in Louisville, officials announced today. The companies will will create 100 new jobs and establish a tier-2 datacenter with full network operations center and staff in the renovated historic building.
“This is a great day for the Commonwealth, with 100 new jobs and the headquarters for two companies locating here in Louisville,” said Gov. Steve Beshear. “We welcome Indatus and Mocura as new corporate citizens in Kentucky, and we realize just how significant headquarters are for our economy, bringing not only top-level jobs, but proven leaders and innovators to our communities.”
The property, at 118 E. Main Street, is registered as a historic building for art deco design in Kentucky. It was also the original headquarters of Four Roses Bourbon, home to the Miller Paper Company, and, most recently, Bridges and Smith Paint Company. Renovation of the historic site, touted as the “Gateway to Whisky Row” is estimated to be completed by late December 2013. The project also includes the refurbishing of 9,000 s.f. on the first floor available for lease to a retail or restaurant space, as well as renovating 9,000 s.f. of basement space.
Indatus is a 22-year-old, privately-held company, with products that have been in the “cloud” (running at least partially over the internet on a remote server accessed by the user with a browser) for more than 10 years. These products and services are leading the way in cloud-based technologies, software and communications systems. Indatus has more than 8,000 customers across North America, varying from small businesses to global Fortune100 companies.
Mocura is an 18-month-old sister company to Indatus, which covers three areas of products and services that are solely focused on enterprise-level apps and data gathering. The company’s market-ready mobile applications, custom-developed mobile applications and mobile device management tools utilize existing SaaS cloud architecture to manage data. Mocura grew more than 1,000 percent in the past 12 months and is quickly becoming a major player in the rapidly changing mobile business process arena.
“This project is such a great example of what happens when motivated government agencies and institutions work together with common purpose,” said Dave Durik, CEO of Indatus. “We are just extremely excited and honored to be the recipient of the attention.”
Along with new jobs, “our city will also reap the benefits from economic growth and development,” said Sen. Gerald Neal of Louisville.
