Masonite International will expand its operations in Denmark, S.C.,  creating 50 new jobs over the next year, with additional growth expected in the years to come.

According to a release from the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the 50 new positions will allow Masonite to add another auto line shift. TAdditional growth and capacity increases are expected to take place through the first quarter of 2017. There are also plans for the creation of a weekend shift, which will require additional staffing in auxiliary support departments.

“South Carolina continues to build on its reputation as a leader in manufacturing, and Masonite’s decision to expand in Denmark is another big win for our state,” said South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in a release. “It’s special any time we see a company succeed and grow in one of our rural communities, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the 50 new jobs this expansion means for Bamberg County.”

Masonite International operates more than 70 locations around the world–with 37 sites in the United States alone. Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., the company employs more than 10,000 people worldwide.
