Intent to stay on course with its aggressive expansion plans announced early last year, 84 Lumber has opened a new door shop and engineered wood products hub in Greenville, S.C.

The new 58,000 sq. ft. facility currently runs one interior door line with plans to open an exterior door line by early July as well as a second interior line at a later date. The store employs 10 and hopes to more than double its staffing as business grows.

When the new Greenville store opened, 84 Lumber relocated some of the EWP operation to Wellford, S.C. The addition of the EWP plant in Wellford will increase the production capacity by nearly 50%.

“The Wellford/Spartanburg area is an area we are targeting for future growth, so having a location there will set us up for success and allow us to better service our customers in those markets,” said Matt Rinck, area manager.

The company is also moving forward with its other expansion plans, including a components plant now under construction in Mansfield, Oh., and expansions in Detroit, Mi.; Boise, Id.; and Stockton, Ca.
