RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory on Friday announced a furniture manufacturer is investing more than $500,000 to expand its facilities in Rockingham County.
Officials say the expansion by Southern Finishing Company, a furniture and cabinet component manufacturer with a facility in Stoneville, will result in the creation of eleven jobs.
The expansion will more than double the company’s workforce at the Stoneville facility, where ten people are currently employed.
Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual payroll for the new jobs will be more than $280,000, officials said. That equates to an average of about $25,455 per new worker.
The expansion will take three years to complete.
Southern Finishing Company, founded in 1978, specializes in prefinishing mouldings, accessories, panels, doors, kitchen and bath cabinet components, and bedrails crafted to each customer’s specifications. The company partners with manufacturers such as American Woodmark, Marsh Furniture, Armstrong Cabinets, Quality Cabinets and Thomasville Furniture.
