Woodgrain, Inc., a building products company, will expand its door-hanging operation in Rocky Mount, a $7.5 million project.

Family-owned and operated since 1954, the business is a vertically integrated manufacturer of moulding, millwork, windows, doors, door jambs and door frames. The company is headquartered in Idaho and has operations in Chile and the U.S. with seven locations in North Carolina, including a sawmill. This expansion will relocate Woodgrain’s existing operation to a 225,000 sq.-ft. site in Rocky Mount.

“We are excited to expand our Rocky Mount operation, while also creating more jobs that will have a positive impact on this great community,” said 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.”

New jobs will be created in production, warehouse, delivery, sales, and administrative personnel.

A performance-based grant of $100,000 from the One North Carolina Fund was awarded to the expansion project. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs.

“We are excited to welcome these new jobs and increased investment to our community,” said N.C. Senator Lisa Barnes. “The people of Nash County are ready to support Woodgrain as they grow their presence here.”
