Castle Home Furnishings Plans Greensboro, North Carolina Plant
The facility will include a research and development division to test recliners, proprietary technology and other new items, along with a manufacturing plan, distribution center and warehouse.
The company expects to initially hire 50 associates and eventually ramp up is workforce to 200 employees at its new facility that will be designed to manufacture loveseats, sectionals and sofas.
Piedmont Triad Partnership noted a company spokesman, cited in a Triad Business Journal report said, “the new Greensboro plant is a natural business move to support retailers across the country and tap into the talents of local upholstery workers in the area.”
“One goal of the facility is to create shorter delivery times for customers on the East Coast. The Triad was an attractive location for the plant, because there are many fabric mills that can support a fashion-driven product line,” the spokesman said.
The report also notes the cost of doing business is North Carolina is an advantage over Oxnard, California, where the firm employees 152 associates. The company notes 85 percent of all the materials it purchases is made in the U.S. and its woods are kiln dried FSC certified North American Hardwood.
