Cabinets To Go will invest $9 million to locate its national headquarters, warehouse, distribution center, East Coast customer care call center and training area in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. The company plans to create 88 new jobs.
According to local economic development officials, the company will also be relocating its main distribution center from Redlands, California to Lawrenceburg, citing Tennessee’s central location and its proximity to many Cabinets To Go locations as the reason behind the decision. The company is currently making upgrades to the 420,000 square foot facility, located at 3050 W.O. Smith Dr. Renovations are expected to be complete by this fall.
"This move will allow us to capitalize on the strong talent pool in the state of Tennessee and to continue to build Cabinets To Go into the largest specialty retailer of kitchen cabinets in the United States," Cabinets To Go President Jerry Burdock said.
"Lawrenceburg's central location also facilitates a more efficient and effective distribution network to the bulk of our customers allowing us to provide a much better service. We are extremely excited about Tennessee and the town of Lawrenceburg, where we will set up our 50th showroom location."
“Tennessee’s geographic location is at the heart of the country, allowing businesses to connect to their customers faster. Our interstate system alone makes it possible to reach 60 percent of the U.S. population within an 11-hour drive or less,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “We appreciate Cabinets To Go for recognizing the advantages of doing business in our state and choosing Lawrenceburg for its new national headquarters. Welcome to Team Tennessee.”
"The Lawrence County community extends a very warm welcome to Cabinets To Go,” Lawrenceburg Mayor Keith Durham said. “We are glad to have the perfect building and available workforce to meet their immediate and future needs for warehousing, distribution, retail sales and customer care. I want to thank our partners for all of their hard work in bringing this project to Lawrenceburg, especially the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce and our local economic development team.”
