FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 27, 2015) – A successful hardwood molding company has decided to expand to south-central Kentucky. Governor Steve Beshear today announced Menzner Hardwoods is locating a new facility in Somerset.
Menzner Hardwoods will invest $2.65 million into the project and create 90 jobs.
“We want to welcome Menzner Hardwoods to the Commonwealth,” Gov. Beshear said. “I congratulate them on this project and look forward to their building their business from this location in the Somerset community.”
Under its incorporated name, Menzner Lumber and Supply Co., the company will lease land and buildings in Somerset that had previously served as the home of Glen Oak Lumber. The four buildings totaling 195,000 square feet will serve as rough mill, molding, priming paint line and sawdust processing facilities. The additional space will allow the business to grow beyond the production constraints the Wisconsin-based company faces at its primary location.
