December 8th, 2022 by Editor

Woodgrain Inc. announced a $7.5 million expansion to its door-hanging operation in Rocky Mount, N.C. The development adds 225,000 square feet, while bringing 42 jobs to Nash County.

Woodgrain manufactures moulding, millwork, windows, doors, door jambs and door frames, and has been family-owned and operated since 1954. Headquartered in Idaho, the company has more than 45 manufacturing and warehouse facilities in the U.S. and South America, including operations in Chile and seven locations in North Carolina, as well as a sawmill. The expansion will relocate Woodgrain’s existing operation to the 225,000-square-foot facility.

“We are excited to expand our Rocky Mount operation, while also creating more jobs that will have a positive impact on this great community,” says Todd Dame, president of Woodgrain’s distribution division. “By expanding our manufacturing capabilities, we are able to further enhance our vertical integration, which plays an essential part in delivering on our commitment of creating quality millwork products. We continue to invest in North Carolina and thank all of our highly skilled associates for helping drive Woodgrain and American manufacturing.”

Officials say the new positions yielding 42 additional jobs include production, warehouse, delivery, sales and administrative personnel with a combined average annual salary of $44,464. The new jobs have the potential to create an annual payroll impact of more than $1.8 million, according to the company.

“It’s great that Rocky Mount is Woodgrain’s top choice for its expansion,” says North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. “This decision is indicative of the company’s positive experience with our strong communities, manufacturing economy and our world class workforce.”
