On Oct. 23, Mayor Andy Cook announced BDX-Indiana plans to bring more
than 40 new jobs in the CBD oil production industry to Westfield. BDX-Indiana is a sister company of Biodynamic Ventures, the largest hemp grower in Indiana.
BDX-Indiana produces full-spectrum dissolute products from hemp grown and processed in the state. The company will begin buildout this month. It will be at Thieneman Construction, 17219 Foundation Pkwy.
“We have all seen the growth and innovation of the CBD oil industry, and now Westfield will play a major role in its future,” Cook said. “BDX-Indiana brings a lot of opportunity to our city. We can support the agriculture production and the extraction innovation. I am glad to see that BDX-Indiana chose Westfield.”
In its first three years, BDX-Indiana is set to be one of the largest CBD oil extractors in the nation. It plans to invest $50 million in Westfield during its first three years. Average annual salaries are expected to be approximately $70,000. The Westfield City Council approved a five-year personal property tax abatement for BDX-Indiana’s Phase 1 plans.
“With our experienced partners, we plan to meet the growing demand of hemp products while creating jobs for the City of Westfield and State of Indiana,” BDX-Indiana President Ken Thieneman stated.
