Building materials company to renovate long-vacant facility on Indiana short line

A Franklin, Ind., building materials company recently began renovating a facility located on the Louisville & Indiana Railroad (L&I).

84 Lumber will manufacture wood truss products at the building, located 20 minutes from downtown Indianapolis.

“They will be occupying a building that’s been sitting vacant for over nine years,” said Cheryl Morphew, president and chief executing officer of Johnson County Development Corp. in a prepared statement. “They’ll be repurposing a vacant building and bringing job opportunities.”

And they’ll be shipping building materials via the L&I. A rail spur is already located on the property.

“84 Lumber has been a major player in the building materials market for many years,” said L&I Director of Marketing and Sales Scott Lurkins. “We look forward to growing our business with them as they expand their footprint in Indiana.”

L&I officials expect to begin delivering shipments to 84 Lumber in mid-2016.

One of six short-line railroads operated by Anacostia Rail Holdings Co., the L&I serves numerous customers along the Indianapolis-Louisville, Ky., corridor and in the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville.

Numerous fire departments remain on the scene at Building 6 and a shelter-in-place order has been issued for an area within a two-mile radius of Appliance Park. are on the scene of a massive blaze at General Electric’ s Appliance Park.

Authorities expanded the original half-mile radius area shortly after noon but reduced it back down to a half-mile due to changing weather conditions. Shelter-in-place means residents are recommended to go inside, close doors and windows, turn off air conditioning or heating systems, and turn on the radio or TV for more information.

The blaze consumed the building and it appears to be a total loss. All employees are accounted for and safe. Several other buildings at the park were empty because employees were off for Good Friday.

GE issued the following statement on the fire and how the facility will proceed in the short-term:

The fire at GE Appliance Park has been contained. There were no injuries, however building six – a non-production building which warehouses production parts and contains offices for several hundred employees – has extensive damage. Firefighters remain at the scene.

Our first priority today has been to keep people safe and get the blaze under control. We want to thank fire officials and emergency responders for their outstanding service in that regard. We feel very fortunate that due to Good Friday being a holiday for employees that there were limited personnel working in Appliance Park today.

We now are shifting our focus to resuming operations.
