Southern Indiana veneer firm adding 60 workers

Carl F. Booth Veneers, which provides exotic wood veneers to the executive aircraft industry, will move its New Albany operations to Jeffersonville and create 60 new jobs.

The company will close the existing plant and build a 100,000-square-foot facility in Jeffersonville within the next year to increase production and meet increasing demand for its products, Indiana Economic Development Corp. announced today.

Carl F. Booth Veneers, a division of Columbus, Ohio-based executive aircraft specialist DeCrane Aerospace Inc., supplies custom cabinetry, furniture, door and veneer components for executive and diplomatic aircraft, yachts and offices around the world.

The state offered the company up to $550,000 in performance-based tax credits and up to $72,000 in training grants based on its job-creation plans. The company currently has 74 employees.
