LEBANON, Ind. – The Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC) today announced Hachette Book Group’s plans to expand again in the Lebanon Business Park.  Hachette Book Group leased a third building in the Lebanon Business Park in early 2016, and with this expansion, Hachette Book Group anticipates creating up to 130 new jobs.

The Lebanon Redevelopment Commission and the Lebanon City Council approved incentives Monday night at the request of the Boone EDC.  Among these incentives is a reimbursable training grant.

“Hachette Book Group’s growing presence in Lebanon is a prime example of the pro-business climate we have in Lebanon,” said Matt Gentry, Mayor of Lebanon.  “I am pleased that Hachette Book Group plans to expand yet again, and I look forward to a productive relationship with the company in the years to come.”

“Hachette Book Group has been a mainstay in the Lebanon Business Park since the park’s early days, and we are thankful the company continues to grow here in Boone County,” said Molly Whitehead, Executive Director of the Boone EDC.  “We cannot underestimate the value Hachette Book Group has had in our community, not only by being one of our largest employers, but because of their extensive community involvement.”
