AHF Products has announced plans this month to invest $2.5 million and create 20 full-time jobs at its Somerset, Kentucky facility early in 2021. Work on the expansion already has begun and is scheduled to be completed in February.
AHF Products opted to expand its Somerset facilities in large part because of the highly skilled workforce and the company’s commitment to U.S. manufacturing and American craftsmanship. In addition to creating 20 jobs at the plant, the move also helps secure the facility’s viability and its current 145 jobs as the market adds sliced face capabilities in addition to the rotary engineered hardwood flooring currently made at the plant.
“We continue to invest in our Somerset plant due to the quality of the products and dedication to future growth that we see from employees,” said Brian M. Carson, President & CEO of AHF Products. “Our customers continue to see value in U.S.-manufactured products, and this new development not only helps us to create innovative products and new technology, but continues our commitment to domestic manufacturing and grows our share of U.S.-manufactured wood products.”
Headquartered in Mountville, Pennsylvania, AHF Products employs over 2,000 people across its seven manufacturing locations – six in the U.S. and one in Cambodia. The Somerset location has produced engineered hardwood flooring since opening in 1990.
This plant once produced sliced engineered products only. Rotary was added years later. In fact this was the first sliced veneer plant in the U.S for wood flooring. One could not tell the difference between the 3/8″ X 2-1/4″ engineered from solid once installed.
