Matrix Design Group, a leader in safety and productivity technologies for the mining business, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new headquarters in Newburgh, Indiana during April. It was attended by local community leaders and key stakeholders from Matrix Design Group and Alliance Resource Partners.

The company said the event signifies its commitment to the local community and its vision for growth and innovation. The facilities will feature a new state-of-the-art product testing lab, expanded office space for growth, and a training center for employees, customers and distributors enabling increased education, support and development related to Matrix’s product lines.

“Our new facilities will foster new opportunities. We are excited to expand our existing presence in Newburgh and, in the process, enable our growth internationally,” said Mark Watson, president, Matrix Design Group. “We are building upon our company’s past success while growing to meet the needs of the customers and industries who benefit from our technologies.”

With construction slated for completion by January 2025, Matrix is poised to expand its presence in the region and attract top technological talent from across the tristate area. Ultimately, the new headquarters will accommodate Matrix’s hiring of more  than 150 additional employees over the next five years.

“We are thrilled to be part of the Newburgh and greater Evansville community and look forward to further contributing to its economic growth and development,” said Joe Craft, chairman, president and CEO, Alliance Resource Partners, which owns Matrix. “This investment in Matrix strengthens the company’s ability to attract and retain the highest-caliber tech and engineering minds in the region, while providing the organizational resources necessary for rapid growth.”
