GOSHEN, Ind. - A custom stair railing manufacturer is expanding in Indiana, adding 200 good-paying jobs by 2023, it says.
Viewrail, a family-owned maker of custom floating stairs, railing systems, and stair components will invest more than $12 million in Indiana - expanding its facility by 40,000 square feet and doubling its footprint. The new space will allow for new machinery and increased manufacturing space.
The company, who currently employs 135, will hire for all positions, including in production, shipping, and administration. Viewrail said the jobs will offer salaries above the state and county averages.
"We started this company in my basement in Goshen, and we now have four separate facilities comprising 140,000 square feet, all located within a mile of each other," Len Morris, founder and owner of Viewrail, said in a statement. "Our belief is that our products are long lasting, but people are eternal. We're fortunate to be able to find people of this quality right here in Goshen, Indiana."
"Indiana's hardwood industry has an annual economic impact of over $10 billion and supports 70,000 Hoosier jobs because of companies like Viewrail choosing to grow and operate in our state," Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch said in a statement. "Indiana's pro-growth business climate, rich history of agriculture and robust hardwood sector make our state the ideal location for Viewrail to expand its operations."
