20 Indiana wood manufacturers recognized on ‘North America’s Largest’ list

INDIANA (April 6, 2022) — Twenty wood manufacturing firms from Indiana have been included on the 2022 FDMC 300 list, which ranks the largest cabinet, furniture, millwork, store fixture, office/contract and component producers in North America.

“Indiana is proud to be ranked as a top producer for so many wood products and to supply a large number of Hoosiers with good paying hardwood manufacturing jobs,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture. “Wood is a renewable resource and provides a stability and quality to furniture like no other.”

Jasper-based MasterBrand Cabinets ranks No. 3 overall and is the largest on the list from Indiana. MasterBrand generated an estimated $2.825 billion in 2021 sales volume and employs 11,000 people. Its manufacturing operations span 16 plants across the United States and Mexico, totaling more than 6 million square feet to produce semi-custom and custom fully assembled kitchen and bath cabinets and more. 

“As a company, we’re dedicated to creating cabinets that help make homes beautiful, functional and unique, and our success is due our hardworking associates,” said David Banyard, president, MasterBrand Cabinets. “The roots of MasterBrand Cabinets can be traced back nearly 70 years to Celestine, Indiana, and while we’ve grown significantly since then, we’re proud to still call Indiana home.”

Companies on the list are ranked according to annual sales. Three other Indiana firms rank among the top 35 companies on the list: Kimball International Inc. lands at No. 21, OFS Brands Inc. holds spot No. 31 and Genesis Products is No. 34.

Jasper-based Kimball International Inc. makes office, hospitality furniture and cabinet products. In 2021, the company’s sales totaled an estimated $569 million. Kimball International Inc. operates 9 plants across the U.S. and Mexico and employs 2,800 people.

Huntingburg-based OFS Brands Inc. posted estimated sales of $375 million in 2021. OFS owns 10 U.S. manufacturing plants totaling 2 million square feet with 1,650 employees. The company makes contract/office furniture; desks, filing storage, conference tables, office chairs and office seating; and healthcare, education and hospitality furniture.

Goshen-based Genesis Products makes wood panels, wood interior products and other wood products for leading manufacturers in the RV, manufactured housing, hospitality and other industries. In 2021, the company’s sales totaled and estimated $346 million. Genesis Products operates 9 plants across the U.S. and employs 1,150 people.

While not headquartered in Indiana, five other top-25 firms on the list host at least one manufacturing plant in Indiana. Those are Cabinetworks Group; American Woodmark Corp.; Dorel Industries Inc.; Sauder Woodworking; and Quanex Homeshield.

“Having many Indiana headquartered companies on this list is something we are proud of. I also want to recognize the companies that are not based in Indiana, but have a manufacturing facility here. This goes to show that Indiana is a good place to do business and having these companies in Indiana increases the value of Indiana hardwoods,” said Bruce Kettler, director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.

Indiana’s hardwood industry has an annual economic impact of more than $10 billion and supports 70,000 jobs. Indiana’s Hardwood Strategy aims to grow these numbers by promoting the expansion of current wood processing facilities, attracting new companies to the state, educating consumers and businesses on the sustainability of the hardwoods industry and seeking opportunities to increase the value of Indiana’s hardwood products.
