Upholstry to Create 27 New Jobs in Randolph County
Lancaster Inc., a luxury upholstery maker, will relocate and expand with a $5 million investment in a new facility in Archdale. The company intends to retain its current 25 full-time employees and create at least 27 new jobs with an average annual salary of $46,000 over five years. Lancaster Inc. will build a plant on Archdale Road that is more than three times the size of its current location in the Interstate Business Park. Plans for the new greenfield construction have been submitted for review, with grading to begin by the end of October and relocation to the new site in 2024. The expansion will generate opportunities for jobs in framing, sewing, upholstery, marketing, customer care, and management, and will also benefit local suppliers to the company.
“The support from The City of Archdale and Randolph County was a predominant factor in our decision to remain in this area,” said company President Bill Lancaster. “This project will enable us to better serve our customers and afford our entire team many added benefits that will come with the new and enhanced facility.”
