“By enhancing our production capacity and upgrading key equipment to ensure quality and energy-efficiency, we are reaffirming our commitment to provide top quality vinyl siding materials to our customers,” said Joe Bondi, president of Millwork & Panel. “Thank you to the entire team in Claremont for your work to make this project a reality and a special thank you to the State of North Carolina, Catawba County, the City of Claremont, and the North Carolina Community College System for your hospitality over the years and support of this project.”

New jobs will come with the expansion including machine operators, material handlers, operators, and technicians.

Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders said in a statement. “From our diverse workforce and creative workforce training partnerships to our affordable business climate and infrastructure access, North Carolina offers innovative manufacturers a great foundation to build a thriving operation.”
