Morrisofa Global, an importer and distributor of upholstered furniture whose parent company, Morris Holdings, designs and manufactures upholstered sofas, opened its operations hub at SouthPoint Business Park in Mocksville, North Carolina.
Wayne Stewart, Vice President of Morrisofa Global Inc. said, "We recently leased a 92,000 SF building in Mocksville, NC from the Hollingsworth Companies. This location was selected because of the logistical advantage of both North, South, East and West transportation corridors and for the excellent value of the property. Hollingsworth has been great to work with during the entire closing and move in process and we anticipate a good working relationship moving forward."
Terry Bralley, President, Davie County Economic Development Commission added, "having a building partner like The Hollingsworth Companies makes a big difference in a rural community. Without a building program this project would not have happened in our community, even though it's a perfect fit for us.”
“We are in the heart of furniture country, and perfectly located on the east coast for logistics. We are excited to have the new jobs added to our community, and welcome Morrisofa Global to Mocksville and Davie County. This is the 8th company attracted with this public/private partnership with The Hollingsworth Companies,” Bralley explained.
The Hollingsworth Companies are the largest non-urban Industrial Real Estate developer and construction firm in the southeastern United States with 125 tenants, eighteen million square feet of industrial space, spread over 15 states.
"We have seen a significant increase in activity since the election of Donald Trump as all of our facilities in the SouthPoint Industrial parks in North Carolina, Alabama, and Virginia are now leased. We have broken ground on 500,000 SF of additional industrial space across our parks and started an 80 acre expansion in SouthPoint Mocksville," said Joe Hollingsworth, President & CEO of The Hollingsworth Companies.
