INDCO, Incorporated was founded in 1975 as a producer of industrial mixers for the paint and coatings industry. Charles E. Broadus, a former employee of EI DuPont, launched the company from his New Albany, Indiana residence where it operated for nearly eleven years. By 1986 growth had extended to the chemical industry and beyond requiring new facilities. The current location at 4040 Earnings Way in the New Albany industrial park was purchased. The first Indco catalog was mailed that same year and featured eleven pages of portable mixers.
INDCO experienced tremendous evolution and growth through the 1990’s. The first INDCO.com website went live in 1994. New products and acquisitions increased the company’s offering. The INDCO Mix Master paint shaker was introduced in 1995 and the Simmonds Slicker line of 5-gallon pail mixers was acquired in 1996.
Significant investment continued into the new century as the building experienced multiple expansions, increasing office and production space. A 2006 major investment in CNC machining centers and expertise improved quality, costs and lead times. This was followed with the implementation of our current ERP system in 2007 enabling Indco to rapidly provide detailed quotes, customer order acknowledgments and order history.
During the recessionary years beginning in 2009 INDCO continued to grow its product line and to invest in business improvements. Our line of deluxe sanitary pharmaceutical mixers and our new state of the art website were both completed in 2011. Today we serve thousands of loyal customers in a wide variety of industries and applications. With an average of nearly ten years of service per employee (including several over 15 years) we have the skills, experience and knowledge to support your mixing system needs with the right equipment built to high quality standards.
