INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- Wood-Mizer, a portable saw manufacturer, plans to invest approximately $8.4 million in a new plant located in Batesville, IN.

The new 85,000-square-foot plant will replace Wood-Mizer's current manufacturing facility in New Point, IN. The company says it will immediately bring 120 new jobs to the area and add an additional 15.

“Being involved with the Southeast Indiana community for more than 30 years, we wanted to establish an opportunity for expansion for both Wood-Mizer and the local economy,” said Wood-Mizer COO Darryl Floyd. “While becoming one of the largest companies in Batesville, Wood-Mizer is excited to continue manufacturing sawmills in a more efficient and larger capacity at this location and we’d like to thank the City of Batesville for their assistance in making this opportunity possible.”

Founded in 1982, Wood-Mizer is now a 100% employee-owned company that sells not only portable sawmills but industrial mills, blades, material handling equipment, edgers, resaws, kilnns and more.
