Hundreds of new jobs are coming to two Indiana communities, Gov. Mike Pence announced Monday.
California-based Systems in Motion, a self-described IT consulting and outsourcing firm, plans to expand to Kokomo and Carmel, creating up to 400 jobs by 2017 -- about 240 in Kokomo and 160 in Carmel.
The company announced plans to start hiring for software development, testing and support positions in July.
Systems in Motion was offered up to $5.65 million in conditional tax credits and $100,000 in training grants by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.
The credits are conditional and performance-based, so the company cannot claim incentives until hires are made.
Systems in Motion has locations in Michigan, Minnesota and Missouri.
