Masterbrand Tax Abatement Request Takes Another Step Forward

2master_logoThe $1.4 million dollars tax abatement for a planned expansion by Masterbrand Cabinets takes another step forward.

The proposed expansion at Masterbrand’s Ferdinand manufacturing facility could mean as many as 135 new jobs, most of them in the $11-$14-an-hour range with some upper level positions that would pay up to $24-an-hour.

The Ferdinand Town Council gave its initial approval to the tax abatement request.

Town Council President Ken Sicard tells NewsNow Dubois County the seven-year abatement is expected to get final approval when the governing board meets February 11th.

Sicard says Masterbrand hopes to have its new cabinet manufacturing equipment in place as well as the new jobs by this summer.
