Karn Custom Woodwork Expands Manufacturing In Richmond, Virginia
“The healthy construction market, plentiful vendor base, and the availability of skilled personnel make Richmond, Virginia the ideal location for an architectural millwork firm,” said Karn Custom Woodwork Owner Kenneth Kueny. “We are proud to serve this market, and look forward to many years of continued growth.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Karn Custom Woodwork’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.
The company is also eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development.
“The success of businesses of all sizes is critical to a strong economy, which is why corporate partners like Karn Custom Woodwork are so important to the Commonwealth,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “Founded and headquartered in our capital city, the company’s steady growth benefits both the manufacturing and wood products industries. Focusing on sectors that diversify and build the new Virginia economy is paramount, and we thank Karn Custom Woodwork for its investment and commitment to the City of Richmond and the Commonwealth.”
“We applaud Karn Custom Woodwork on their expansion and continued success in the City of Richmond,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Todd Haymore. “More than 31,000 Virginians were employed in the wood products sector in 2016 and the overall forestry industry generates about $18 billion annually. Because of these strong workforce and economic foundations, the Commonwealth offers excellent forestry manufacturing education and training programs, which will continue to provide companies like KCW with a robust pipeline of talent.”
