Wood-Mizer expands in Indiana, streamlines machinery production
BATESVILLE, Ind. - Wood processing equipment manufacturer Wood-Mizer will add 53,000 square feet of production space to its manufacturing facility in Batesville, Indiana, bringing its total square footage to 132,000.
The employee-owned Wood-Mizer, who employs 200 at the Batesville plant, aims to grow its product range and streamline production with the expansion. 
“Wood-Mizer is dedicated to providing our customers with a wide range of equipment to satisfy their wood processing equipment needs,” shared Wood-Mizer North America President Darryl Floyd. “This facility expansion in Batesville will allow Wood-Mizer to continue to meet the global demand of our growing range of products that are built right here in Indiana.”
Wood-Mizer plans to add jobs for the expanded facility, but couldn't project how many. The expansion should be completed in October.
Since 1982, Wood-Mizer has produced narrowband portable and industrial sawmills, wideband sawmilling equipment, band resaws, board edgers, wood kilns, planer/moulders, firewood processing equipment, pallet recycling equipment, material handling equipment, bandsaw blades, and blade maintenance equipment for woodworking and forestry hobbyists and professionals all over the world.
