DAYTON - idX Corp., the store fixtures and panel manufacturing giant, is considering a $6.5 million effort to relocate operations and expand in Dayton, OH.
The City of Dayton has applied to Montgomery County's ED/GE economic development program for $150,000 in financial support, says The Dayton Business Journal.
The location being studied for idX, which makes wood, laminate and metal products for the retail furniture and display industry, is a large site of the former Rex retail building.
IDX would use 200,000 square feet and invest $6.5 million over several years, ultimately employing 250 by 2017, according to the Dayton Daily News.
idX Corp. has been expanding continuously during the recovery.
In September 2012 idX opened a Mexico City office, hiring Jimena Sotres to manage the operation. The office provides regional project management for idX clients in Mexico and Central America. Sotres, who has managed projects for Coach, Armani, Brooks Brothers, Michael Kors, and Nike, will be involved as idX expands the Mexico City staff, adding further to its project management and engineering capabilities.
"idX is positioned to support the global growth of brands and retailers, no matter their location,"says CEO Terry Schulz.
idX Corporation manufactures interiors for retail, hospitality, financial and point-of-purchase markets. Clients include Calvin Klein, ClearWire, Macy’s, JCPenney, Levi’s, Marriott, Michael Kors, Microsoft, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Starbucks, T-Mobile and Tommy Hilfiger.
