New jobs are coming to central Indiana as a company brings its headquarters to Carmel. That's the new home for Allegion.

The Ireland-based company was spun off from Ingersoll Rand last week.

It will mean up to 100 near jobs by 2014. Allegion produces mechanical and electronic security products for commercial and residential markets.

As North American headquarters, it will be mostly white collar jobs. The company already employs 1,000 Hoosiers in a manufacturing plant on the west side of Indianapolis and a testing facility in Fishers.

"Economic development, jobs, especially manufacturing jobs are critical for the state of Indiana, critical for our nation," said Dave Petraits, Allegion CEO.

"Big month for Allegion as you spun off from Ingersoll Rand and made your debut as a stand-alone, publicly traded operation. Join the ranks of Indiana's largest employers. As you chart a new direction and provide global security solutions, you are also helping to provide financial security for families in Indiana," said Gov. Mike Pence.

Carmel is now the company's North American headquarters, but Allegion also has operations in Brussels in Europe and Shanghai in Asia. It employs about 7,600 people worldwide.
