WASHINGTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Adrienne Laborwit has been thinking about this day for years.

“We literally dreamed about it in the old building. Our old building was very enclosed, there were no windows, everything was gray, we would often think about what it would be like to work in a place that was colorful and inviting.”

Her dream has turned into a reality.

True RX held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their new building in Washington, a 15,000 square foot facility that can hold over 150 employees.

Chief operating officer Mark Williams said the building was needed after the company added about 80 employees over the past two years.

“We have hired 86 people since we broke ground in 2020. So True RX Health Strategists has grown 30% every year [the past five years,]” Williams said. “We’re really proud to be able to employ all the employees here in Daviess county and the surrounding communities.”

Community affairs director with the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs Neil Elkins complimented the business on their investment into Daviess County.

“We say it’s all about jobs, but in my opinion, it’s all about community. I feel this company will be a strong part of this community, will help build this community, they’ve hired local, and kept those people here,” he said.

Williams said the $2.5 million facility may be joined by another in the coming years, as there room for another building right next to it.

“In two years, we have enough room out here for a second building, I think we’ll be starting on that,” he said.

Laborwit, the chief strategy officer with True Rx, said the day also offered an opportunity to reflect on over a decade of work for the company.

“We started as five employees, the fact that we are here today in a beautiful 15,000 square foot building that holds more than 150 employees is something we’ve been working hard towards for over a decade,” she said.

Williams said none of this would be possible without the employees.

“We have amazing employees, and people ask me, ‘Why don’t you build in a big city?’ I say, ‘I can’t hire as good of people in a big city.’ The local community really has treated us right and we can hire really good people,” he said.

Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch could not be in attendance due to the special session in Indianapolis. She wrote a letter to the business that can be read here.
