Pike Lumber Company plans to expand its operations here, doubling annual hardwood production and creating up to 15 new jobs by 2020, as government of Indiana reports.
Pike Lumber Company will invest $3.4 million to construct and equip a 27,200-square-foot addition to its Milan-based manufacturing facility. The facility, which will expand the company’s operations in Milan to cover 34,880 square feet, will allow Pike Lumber to double its lumber production to eight million board feet annually, increasing its supply to manufacturing customers.
The addition will house a maintenance shop and new lumber handling and sawmilling equipment. Construction on the company’s expansion began earlier this month, with plans to be operational by this December.
Founded in 1904, Pike Lumber is Indiana’s largest manufacturer and distributor of kiln dried lumber.
