Masonite International Corp. announced plans to invest in a new door manufacturing facility in Fort Mill, SC.

“We’re excited about this opportunity to better serve our customers by expanding our capacity with an additional facility in the Southeast,” said Howard Heckes, Masonite president and CEO. “The new plant’s location is ideally suited from a logistics standpoint to service some of our strongest markets. Leveraging state-of-the-art equipment and our Mvantage operating system, our Fort Mill facility will be a safe and efficient addition to our manufacturing network.”

The new 370,000-square-foot facility will produce doors for the North American residential housing market and is expected to employ more than 220 people, beginning in early 2022, officials said.

“Masonite’s investment is a significant commitment to South Carolina and our people,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. “The more than 220 jobs created in Fort Mill will make a difference in the lives of South Carolinians, and we look forward to seeing the impact it will have on this community for years to come.”
