Elkhart, Ind. The good news on the job front continues. A Michigan lumber company known for manufacturing framing materials has its eye on Elkhart.
If Zeeland Lumber and supply expands, it'll bring around 70 jobs to the area over the next three years. Company officials are looking at buying an old manufacturing facility on Manchester Drive. Hired employees would average $16 an hour.
Zeeland currently has a presence in five Michigan cities and a showroom in Mishawaka. If the Elkhart move happens, the Mishawaka showroom would be based from there. Company officials laid out their plans at Monday’s City Council Meeting.
