The Cycling Industry Stimulates the Indy Economy
Governor Mitch Daniels was on hand today as Zipp Speed Weaponry, located in Speedway, Indiana, announced an expansion that would create 105 new jobs - nearly doubling its current workforce - between now and 2013. Zipp makes some of the lightest and most expensive cycling wheels in the world; they're used by many of the top pro teams (and several of my own teammates). As part of the expansion, which is reported here on BikeRadar.com, Zipp will be constructing a new, 70k square foot manufacturing and customer service center near its current headquarters in Speedway.
