Woodgrain Millwork expanding in Smyth County
Woodgrain Millwork announced Monday it will invest $1.86 million to expand its door and window component manufacturing facility in Smyth County. The expansion is expected to create 17 jobs.
Idaho-based Woodgrain Millwork is one of the largest millwork operations in the world. It has been operating for over 60 years.
The company will invest in site improvements and equipment needed to build an 18,000-square-foot addition to its Marion mill. It also has committed to purchase more than $4.6 million of Virginia lumber over the next three years, or 78 percent of the forestry inputs needed for the new production venture.
Woodgrain Millwork’s primary products will be exterior door frames, brick mouldings and doorjambs.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe approved a $100,000 grant from the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund for the project, which Smyth County is matching with local funds.
The company also has been awarded a grant from the Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission.
Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will also be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
