Twin job announcements Tuesday are expected to create more than 850 jobs in Indiana.

In Indianapolis, Gov. Mike Pence joined executives from Celadon Trucking Services, Inc., to announce the company’s plans to build a driver training school in the city. The company will invest $5.7 million for a 61,000 square-foot facility at 9050 E. 33rd St. The building will house a training center, dorms, cafeteria, workout facilities and a driver training road course.

As part of the deal, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Celadon nearly $3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants. The driver training center is expected to bring 500 jobs to Indianapolis by 2022.

Celadon employs more than 650 Hoosiers and is one of North America’s largest truckload carriers. Nationwide, the company has about 4,000 associates.

In Jeffersonville, Dayton, Ohio-based Standard Register announced plans for a digital print and distribution center expected to create up to 360 jobs by 2016. The company will invest about $10 million to lease and renovate a 335,000 square-foot facility in the River Ridge Commerce Center.

The center will house digital printing, kitting and distribution operations. Expected to begin operations this summer, the facility will provide more flexible delivery options for Standard Register customers. The company was founded in 1912 and has more than 2,200 employees at 30 locations around the country. The company also has a facility in Shelbyville that employs 85 workers.

IDEC offered Standard Register up to 2.3 million in conditional tax credits and up to $175,000 in training grants.
