Prepac Manufacturing Investing $27.1M, Adding 201 Jobs
Canada-based Prepac Manufacturing Ltd., a North American manufacturer of Ready-to-Assemble furniture will invest $27.1 million to locate its new 260,000 square foot east coast furniture factory in Whitsett, North Carolina. The company plans to create 201 jobs in Guilford County.
“When we started evaluating potential locations for our new east coast factory there were several good options for us to consider” said Jim Mathison, President of Prepac Manufacturing. “Ultimately, we chose North Carolina and specifically Guilford County due to several key factors including; the availability of a highly skilled workforce, easy access to major markets, and compelling State and County resources to help ensure that this project is successful given these uncertain times. We look forward to expanding our North American Manufacturing base in Guilford County and are excited to be moving forward with this project.”
