WEST HARRISON, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Work has begun on a 150,000-square-foot millwork manufacturing plant in the Dearborn County town of West Harrison. Arkansas-based Dyke Industries Inc. says it is investing nearly $13 million to expand its Midwest distribution with the addition of the new facility in southeast Indiana.

The company says it will create more than 50 jobs by the end of 2024. This will be the company’s first plant in the Hoosier State, which will support an existing facility in Cincinnati.

“Indiana was a strategic decision made based on multiple factors including tax incentives, available land and labor pool coupled with the ability for future expansion into markets we do not currently serve today,” said Pat Doyle, general manager for Dyke Industries Inc.’s regional location.

The company says it will equip the plant with state-of-the-art, high-speed interior and exterior door lines as well as other millwork. It plans to be operational by the second quarter of 2022.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Dyke Industries up to $400,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans.
