JASPER, IN — Indiana Furniture broke ground yesterday on a 30,000-square-foot addition to its office furniture manufacturing facility in Jasper, IN. The company said it is investing more than $6 million in the expansion, which is slated to be operational by September. The company said the expansion would add at least 10 jobs to the company’s current roster of 287 full-time employees.
Plans for the addition were announced back in November. Indiana Furniture will receive up to $100,000 in training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp. The city of Jasper also approved economic development incentives including property tax abatements.
Founded in 1905, the Jasper, IN-based company has become known for its sustainability in manufacturing. Indiana Furniture says 100 percent of its product volume is BIFMA level certified for sustainability: all casegoods are certified at level 2 and all seating products are level 1. In addition, Indiana Furniture's ultraviolet finishing technology was previously awarded the GREENGUARD certification for indoor air quality by the Greenguard Environmental Institute for the company's non-toxic curing process. The company has nine showrooms located throughout the United States.
