Wellborn Expands Alabama Facilities

Ashland, AL — Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. has added two new buildings to its manufacturing facilities, located at the company’s headquarters in Ashland, AL.

Wellborn said the facilities’ expansion was necessitated in response to continued sales growth, and as part of an effort to improve product flow through the plant.

The first of the two new buildings is a 45,000-sq.-ft., two-story panel parts staging building, which will be used for panel parts storage to be used on the assembly lines, according to the company. A panel processing and machining plant is scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2007, adding another 175,000 sq. ft. to the company’s manufacturing facilities, Wellborn added.

The Wellborn Family Foundation also announced the dedication of a new educational facility for use by the Mellow Valley Christian Academy, a local parochial school. The school, to be located in Ashland, is expected to be opened for the 2006/2007 school year, Wellborn said.
