Masonite Celebrates New Manufacturing Facility In South Carolina
November 3, 2022 — Masonite International Corporation (NYSE: DOOR) a leading global designer, manufacturer, marketer and distributor of interior and exterior doors and door systems, today celebrated the opening of its new door manufacturing facility in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
“We’re excited to have this terrific new facility in our North American Residential manufacturing network,” said Randy White, Senior Vice President, Global Operations and Supply Chain, Masonite. “It was designed from the ground up to be one of our most efficient door assembly plants, utilizing targeted automation to eliminate some of the most ergonomically challenging tasks. It is a safe and efficient addition to our manufacturing network and an important part of delivering consistent and reliable supply to our customers.”
The new facility produces doors for the North American residential housing market and services some of the company’s key markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the country. It leverages the Masonite Mvantage operating system to assist in identifying and eliminating waste and non-value add activities.
Last year, Masonite announced plans to open a new location in York County, which was selected in part due to its proximity to customers and suppliers, workforce quality and availability, and pro-business climate. Located at 160 Steele Point Drive, Fort Mill, SC, the facility will employ approximately 220 people once fully staffed.
“Masonite’s new facility in York County signals that South Carolina’s manufacturing industry remains a strong contributor to creating opportunities,” said Harry M. Lightsey III, South Carolina Secretary of Commerce. “We extend our congratulations to the Masonite team, and we appreciate their commitment to our state – one that is opening the door to choices within our borders.”
“We congratulate Masonite on this milestone and join them in their excitement as they celebrate today,” said Christi Cox, York County Chairwoman. “We are thankful to have this well-recognized manufacturer in our community, not only providing quality jobs, but evidencing York County’s strong manufacturing presence in South Carolina.”
