Masonite International Corporation, a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of interior and exterior doors and door systems, opened a new manufacturing facility in Fort Mill, S.C.

“We’re excited to have this terrific new facility in our North American Residential manufacturing network,” Randy White, senior vice president of global operations and supply chain, said in a prepared statement. “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.”

The Fort Mill facility will produce doors for the North American residential housing market and service Masonite’s key markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern regions of the country. The facility leverages the Masonite Mvantage operating system to assist in identifying and eliminating waste and non-value add activities, according to the company. Masonite selected the location due to its proximity to customers and suppliers, workforce quality and availability, and pro-business climate.
