MasterBrand Cabinets plans new plant in Georgia

07.12.2020 − 

Kitchen furniture manufacturer MasterBrand Cabinets, which belongs to Fortune Brands Home & Security is to build a new production and logistics centre at its Jackson location in the US state of Georgia, around 70km south-east of Atlanta. The project is to be implemented on existing industrial premises with a total area of 820,000 sqft, or almost 8ha. This situation should facilitate the start of operations already within the course of the next few months. According to a statement published on 17 November by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, MasterBrand cabinets will create around 400 new jobs at the new location.

To date, MasterBrand Cabinets operates six locations in Arthur, Illinois; Mooresville and Charlotte (both North Carolina); Louisville, Kentucky; Waterloo, Indiana; and Riverside, California. Arthur is the largest location, with a production capacity of around 2,300 kitchen cabinets per day. As distributed assembly plants, the facilities in Louisville and Riverside are geared toward assembly. The kitchens produced by MasterBrand are sold under the brands Aristokraft, Homecrest, Diamond, Schrock, Kemper, KitchenCraft, Decora and Omega. Since the acquisition of WoodCrafters Home Products concluded in May 2013, the company also produces bathroom furniture. MasterBrand’s largest customers include Lowe’s and The Home Depot. In Mooresville MasterBrand operates a dedicated service centre for Lowe’s.
