Zeeland Lumber Holdings, the parent company of Zeeland Lumber and Supply, announced it will open a new office, distribution center, lumberyard and manufacturing facility in Elkhart, Indiana.
“Everyone here at Zeeland Lumber and Supply is excited to be expanding into the Elkhart area,” said company President and CEO Mike Dykstra, in a Sept. 24 news release announcing the expansion.
“We believe that this move will allow us to better serve our existing Indiana clients from their own backyards,“ Dykstra said. “The added addition of a manufacturing facility will also help us expand our client base in, and around, Elkhart County. “
Zeeland Lumber and Supply has had a presence in Northern Indiana since 2009, when it opened a sales office in Mishawaka. The expansion, which will include a truss manufacturing facility that will specialize in roof trusses, wall panels and floor joists, will create 72 new jobs in Northern Indiana, the announcement said.
Headquartered in Zeeland, the 66-year-old company also has locations in Kalamazoo, Zeeland, Comstock Park, Hamilton and Mishawaka, Indiana.
