Masonite Opens New South Carolina Facility
Masonite International Corporation 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,” says Randy White, Senior Vice President, Global Operations and Supply Chain,
Masonite. “The facility 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.”
About the facility
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 features advanced automation and 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.
What the community is saying
“Masonite’s new facility in York County signals that South Carolina’s manufacturing industry
remains a strong contributor to creating opportunities. Congratulations, and we appreciate
Masonite’s commitment to our state – one that is opening the door to choices within our
borders," says South Carolina Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III.
“We congratulate Masonite on this milestone and join them in their excitement as they celebrate
today. We are thankful to have this well-recognized manufacturer in our community, not only
providing quality jobs, but showcasing York County’s strong manufacturing presence in South
Carolina," says York County Chairwoman Christi Cox.
