Woodgrain, one of the largest millwork operations in the world, will invest $10 million in expanding their Woodgrain Millwork manufacturing operations in Leesburg, Georgia. The project is expected to create 150 additional jobs in Lee County.
Due to increased product demand, the company will expand their current facility, located at 471 U.S. Highway 82 West in Leesburg, by 156,000 square feet. Expanded operations at Woodgrain Millwork are expected to begin by the third quarter of 2022.
“This expansion is a key component of our mission to leverage our vertical integration to deliver premier service and customer driven millwork solutions,” said Cole Wilkinson, Plant Manager at Woodgrain Millwork. “As a proud member of the Lee County community for over 25 years, we look forward to the opportunities this expansion will provide for members of our communities in southwest Georgia.”
Governor Brian P. Kemp said “their commitment to creating manufacturing and distribution jobs in the Peach State is a testament to the pro-business environment companies find here in Georgia and to the highly skilled pipeline of talent in our state.”
Family-owned and operated for more than 65 years, the Woodgrain family of companies has become one of the largest millwork operators in the world. Woodgrain also maintains Georgia-based manufacturing operations in Lee and Sumter counties and a distribution facility in Gwinnett County. According to state officials, the company has had a presence in the state since the early 1990s, employing more than 375 Georgians. Woodgrain manufactures and distributes quality wood moldings, doors, and windows for customers including Georgia-based The Home Depot.
“With manufacturing and distribution operations in Lee, Sumter, and Gwinnett Counties, Woodgrain has been a longtime partner to the state,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Many thanks to our partners at the Lee County Development Authority for the support they provide to the companies who call this community home.”
