Furniture and home furnishings manufacturer Riverside Furniture will create 50 new jobs with a $5.4 million investment for a warehouse and distribution center in Caswell County.
Founded in 1946, Riverside designs, manufactures and distributes residential furnishings to 3,000 furniture retailers across the U.S. The company’s additional 300,000-sq.-ft. of distribution and warehouse operations in Caswell County will reduce shipment lead times to retailers in the Eastern United States from receipt of order.
In addition to this next phase of growth, Riverside is currently renovating the historic YMCA on Main St. in High Point to create a state-of-the-art showroom and product development center for year-round utilization for the furniture industry.
In addition to the North Carolina Department of Commerce, the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina and Caswell County, other key partners in the project include the North Carolina Community College System and Piedmont Community College.
