GRABILL, Ind. – Commercial furniture manufacturer Sauder Manufacturing Co., subsidiary of Ohio-based Sauder Woodworking, will expand its operations into a larger, newly-leased, 159,000-square-foot plant in New Haven, Indiana.
The $3.2 million expansion will nearly double the company’s current production and create 60 new jobs.
Sauder Mfg. manufacturers its Wieland healthcare furniture line at the Grabill facility. The company hopes the expansion will lead to growth in the healthcare furniture market. Specifically, it will allow Sauder to improve workflow and customer service.
Sauder Mfg. is to receive an incentive package valued at $386,291 in conditional tax credits and training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp., along with $23,500 in services from Northeast Indiana Works, reported Wane Media. Sauder may also qualify for a $62,791 tax credit from the City of New Haven.
Construction on the facility will commence this summer and should be completed late this year.
In addition to the Indiana plant, Sauder Mfg. runs two plants in Ohio and one in Virginia.
Sauder Manufacturing is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sauder Woodworking Co. They produce make-to-order contract furniture for the healthcare industry under the Wieland brand, worship furniture under the Sauder Worship brand, education furniture under the Sauder Education brand, and human services furniture under the Butler brand.
Sauder Woodworking President Kevin Sauder was a Wood Industry Market Leader.
