LAWRENCEVILLE - Commercial Cabinetry of Georgia is relocating its manufacturing operations from Walton to Gwinnett County.
In a partnership with the Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development, the custom commercial cabinetry maker is upgrading to a larger facility - about 60,000 square feet, from its previous 20,000-square-foot building in Walton County.
"Commercial Cabinetry of Georgia is a great project win for Gwinnett," said District 4 Commissioner Kevin Kenerly. "With a solid history of consistent growth and development, they will make a great edition to our strong foundation of manufacturing and logistics companies based here in the community."
The company creates custom cabinetry for the commercial sector, builds high-end custom desks, wood work panels, standing and running trim, solid surface materials and laboratory casework primarily for the medical industry. Commercial Cabinetry will bring to Gwinnett a 57-person operation and plans to create an additional 25 new jobs within its first year at 800 Progress Center Ave. in Lawrenceville.
"After reviewing a number of different sites in the metro region, we chose Lawrenceville's Progress Center Avenue," said Matt Beaudry, co-owner and president of Commercial Cabinetry of Georgia. "The new facility will meet our growth needs and Gwinnett just provides an excellent location for our operations due to the fact that we can draw from an excellent labor pool and begin to work with Gwinnett Technical College more aggressively."
In the next year, the company intends to launch its own solid surface division and focus on targeting schools and medical areas that use laboratory casework.
"Commercial Cabinetry of Georgia embodies what we hope to attract to our community," said Alison Starnes, manufacturing and logistics business development manager for Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development. "By creating high-wage manufacturing positions, the company continues to attract a skilled and educated work force ideal for our thriving Gwinnett community."
