Masonite International Expands Production Facility In Bamberg County, South Carolina

06/13/2016
Masonite International, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of decorative interior doors and entry door systems, is expanding its existing its production center in Bamberg County, South Carolina. This expansion will result in the creation of 50 new jobs over the next year, with additional growth expected in the years to come.

According to the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the 50 new positions will allow Masonite’s Denmark, South Carolina, facility to add another auto line shift. Additional growth and capacity increases are expected to take place through the first quarter of 2017. There are also plans for the creation of a weekend shift, which will require additional staffing in auxiliary support departments.

“South Carolina continues to build on its reputation as a leader in manufacturing, and Masonite’s decision to expand in Denmark is another big win for our state. It’s special any time we see a company succeed and grow in one of our rural communities, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the 50 new jobs this expansion means for Bamberg County,” said Governor Nikki Haley.

“We appreciate Masonite’s continued investment in our region, where they already employ nearly 200 people. We are proud of the fact that our workforce has been a part of Masonite’s success at the Denmark facility, where Masonite continues to produce the world’s finest products in the industry. We extend our gratitude and our pledge to continue to support Masonite’s success in any way that we can,” SouthernCarolina Alliance President/CEO Danny Black said.
