Indianapolis: Weeks Communications d/b/a Fathom Voice, a cloud-based phone service provider, announced plans today to expand its headquarters in Indianapolis, creating up to 183 new jobs by 2017.
The homegrown-Hoosier company will invest $4,114,600 to lease and expand 4,900 square feet of office space in Indianapolis. Fathom Voice moved from Anderson to its new Indianapolis location at 6311 Westfield Blvd., Suite 201 in March. Fathom Voice has already begun hiring technical support, sales and account management, marketing and development associates.
Founded in 2007 in Lafayette, Ind., Fathom Voice is a cloud communications company that builds cloud-based applications for computers and phones. Named a 2013 TechPoint Mira Award finalist, the company serves customers throughout the United States as well as several other countries through its cloud-based infrastructure. This is a service that uses the internet to make phone calls instead of traditional copper wire.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Weeks Communications up to $2,400,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $80,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis also supports the project.
