Indiana-Established Digital Marketing Firm Grows Footprint in New Albany
SmartBox, a dental patient attraction company that offers digital and web marketing services for dentists, announced plans today to expand its operation in Floyd County, creating up to 100 new, high-wage jobs by 2022.
"Hoosier entrepreneurs continue to showcase that Indiana is the best place to start a business, grow a business and get a job," said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. "I am thrilled to celebrate SmartBox's growth, and I am confident the best is yet to come as we work to take Indiana to the next level by growing our economy and developing the skills of our Hoosier workforce."
The homegrown-Hoosier and family-owned company is investing more than $1 million to double its footprint at its current 6,500-square-foot headquarters, expanding to occupy all three floors at 821 Mount Tabor Road in New Albany. The renovations, which began in July, will offer SmartBox employees open work spaces, kitchenettes, updated cloud-based technology and six conference rooms. The company expects the remodel to be complete in December, creating a state-of-the-art workplace for its growing team. In addition, SmartBox plans to host an open house in 2018. SmartBox currently employs nearly 50 associates at its headquarters in Indiana, with more than 30 other employees working remotely. The company is currently hiring for content writers, client success managers, digital project managers and digital storytelling experts. These new positions are expected to offer average wages 65 percent above the state’s average wage. SmartBox is focused on offering its employees competitive benefits, including its SmartFit program, which gives its existing employees the opportunity to experience other areas of the company.
