  • Plastic Recycling Company
  • Peterman Brothers
Plastic Recycling Company

Case Study

This plastic recycling company has become one of the largest of it's kind in North America. Wanting to purchase new recycling equipment for their Northern Indiana location, the client approached McGuire Sponsel with their recycling initiative plans. Our Location Advisory team negotiated a Recycling Market Development Program (RMDP) grant with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) by visiting the company’s site and presenting their findings to the IDEM council. The IDEM ultimately awarded the grant to the company, resulting in a $300,000 RMDP grant.

Peterman Brothers

Case Study

With locations across Indiana, Peterman Brothers has become one of the state’s most prominent residential plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and electrical services providers. Peterman Brothers approached McGuire Sponsel to procure incentives on their behalf for their hiring goal of 450 new employees. To accomplish this task, our Location Advisory team negotiated a deal with state and local officials that involved the EDGE tax credit, which is tied to job creation and typically realized over a 10-year period. Based on the company’s projections of 450 new jobs, we were able to leverage the company’s projected headcount growth and procure a $5.5 million EDGE tax credit for Peterman Brothers.
