Company creates new manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania
Posted on October 2, 2015
It appears that one company is expanding and creating manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania.
Oak Hill Veneer, Inc., a manufacturer of spliced hardwood veneer, will expand its operations in Troy, Bradford County. The expansion will create 73 new, full-time jobs.
Oak Hill Veneer will expand operations by constructing a new 15,000-square-foot building and adding a new line of veneer splicing equipment.
In addition, Oak Hill will lease a 35,000-square-foot building in the same community where it will install a new line of manufacturing equipment to produce veneer board.
Oak Hill Veneer is one of 18 companies owned by Spanish company, Grupo Losan, which is exclusively dedicated to the manufacture of wood products, for the furniture, decorative and equipment industries. Oak Hill Veneer specializes in cutting and splicing wood veneer in various thicknesses from the major American hardwood tree species.
The company plans to invest almost $2 million on the project and has also committed to the creation of 73 new, full-time jobs and the retention of 62 current positions over the next three years.
“Oak Hill Veneer, Inc. is very excited about our upcoming expansion project,” said Amy Jackson, Project Coordinator. “This project has been months in the making and we are finally able to make an idea a reality. The state’s assistance will be used towards the purchase of the new equipment and to help with the construction of the new building at the Oak Hill Veneer, Inc. site. These upcoming projects will create many jobs and bring more business to the community.”
