Metal Works to Expand in High Point; Add 20 Jobs
Metal Works of High Point will expand its operations, investing $2,819,000 and adding 20 jobs. The company has purchased 1245 Hickory Chapel Rd. The 37,050-sf property will house a powder-coating line and additional room for assembly to help meet growing demand.
The family-owned company, headquartered in High Point, manufactures metal components, weldments and assemblies for the material handling, furniture, transportation, power generation and appliance industries.
“Over our 30-year history in High Point, we have experienced a lot of growth, and now with this expansion we can continue to grow and create more jobs in the community,” said Metal Works president and owner Jonathan Hall.
Currently, Metal Works has 52 full-time employees. The 20 new jobs are projected to be added over the next two years and will meet the Guilford County average annual wage. Positions will include a director of operations, quality engineer, welders, painters, and machine operators among others.
With the property purchase completed, renovations will now begin with the goal to be operational by October 2022.
