Wood Product Supplier Announces Expansion
Quality Hardwood Sales LLC, a manufacturer of dimensioned wood products, announced plans to expand its Indiana operations, creating up to 25 new jobs by 2016.
According to a press release, the homegrown-Hoosier company will expand and equip its facility in Nappanee. Moving all production in house, the company plans to add 50,000 square feet to its current facility for domestic and foreign inventory, which will allow it to utilize a total of 128,000 square feet of operational space by April.
“To carve a niche in business, companies like Quality Hardwood Sales need an environment where expenses are limited and opportunities are boundless,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. (IEDC), which offered $200,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. “With its selection of Indiana, it confirms that we are nailing our mission to be a state that works for business, from our low cost of doing business to a workforce that is second to none.”
Quality Hardwoods Sales, which currently employs approximately 85 full-time Indiana associates, plans to begin hiring machine operators, off-bearing associates and forklift drivers in April. Interested applicants may apply by filling out an application at the company’s Nappanee office or emailing a resume to email@example.com.
“Indiana provides the ideal central location to expand our business, keeping us close to our customers,” said Darin Hurn, co-owner of Quality Hardwood Sales. “Elkhart County, in particular, is known as the RV capital of the world, also with a significant concentration of kitchen cabinet manufacturers. This the best place to add new jobs.”
Founded in 2001, Quality Hardwood Sales manufactures wood interior products for the RV industry and constructs component parts for kitchen cabinets, furniture and other custom orders.
