The door manufacturing plant will serve key markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions.
The new Masonite facility will have more than 200 employees once it is fully staffed.
Masonite has opened its latest door manufacturing facility in Fort Mill, S.C.
The new facility produces doors for the North American residential housing market and services some of the company’s key markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the country.
Additionally, the facility features advanced automation and leverages the Masonite Mvantage operating system to assist in identifying and eliminating waste and non-value add activities.
“We’re excited to have this terrific new facility in our North American Residential manufacturing network,” said Randy White, senior vice president, global operations and supply chain, Masonite. “The facility was designed from the ground up to be one of our most efficient door assembly plants, utilizing targeted automation to eliminate some of the most ergonomically challenging tasks. It is a safe and efficient addition to our manufacturing network and an important part of delivering consistent and reliable supply to our customers.”
Last year, Masonite announced plans to open a new location in York County, which was selected in part due to its proximity to customers and suppliers, workforce quality and availability, and pro-business climate.
The factory will employ approximately 220 people once fully staffed.
“Masonite’s new facility in York County signals that South Carolina’s manufacturing industry remains a strong contributor to creating opportunities. Congratulations, and we appreciate Masonite’s commitment to our state – one that is opening the door to choices within our borders.” said South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
Based in Tampa, Fla., Masonite serves more than 7,000 customers.
Earlier this week, Masonite reported third quarter sales increased 12% to $728 million from third quarter sales of $652 million in the third quarter 2021.
Masonite also recently announced that it is acquiring Endura, a manufacturer of high-performance door frames and door system components.
The deal calls for Masonite to pay approximately $375 million in cash, subject to customary closing adjustments and regulatory approval.
