NEW ALBANY, IN — Holstein, IA-based VT Industries says it plans to expand its custom door manufacturing operations in New Albany, IN, creating 22 jobs by 2010, according to Manufacturing & Technology eJournal. The company, which specializes in laminate countertops, stone surfaces and high-end wood doors, plans to relocate its raised panel door division, currently based in Holstein, to its southern Indiana facility. The company will add a 100,000 square-foot production facility adjacent to its existing building with construction expected to begin in less than a month.
“This move is a great opportunity to not only increase production of flush wood doors produced in Holstein, but to increase production of our stile-and-rail doors and our high-end custom doors manufactured at the ideal facility,” said Jason Farver, vice president of VT Architectural Wood Doors.
VT Industries, which employs nearly 60 at its southern Indiana facility, will begin hiring additional manufacturing workers, supervisors and managers in a few months. The company currently has eight manufacturing facilities across North America.
