A family-owned cabinet company has announced a $17 million expansion in Oxford that will create 415 jobs over five years.
Ashland-based Wellborn Cabinet Inc. will build a 250,000-square-foot facility to begin production of a new kitchen and bath cabinetry product.
Construction is set to begin next spring. The facility, to be built on 60 acres at Oxford West Industrial Park in Talladega County, should begin operations in the fall of 2024.
Alabama Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield announced the move, calling Wellborn “a landmark business in east Alabama.”
“It’s always great news when a successful Alabama company like Wellborn Cabinet decides to launch a significant growth project right here at home,” Canfield said.
Founded in 1961, Wellborn Cabinet currently employs 1,336 workers. The company makes kitchen, bath, and whole home cabinetry with seven product lines.
Last year, the company announced a $15 million expansion in Ashland, to add a planer mill, paint facility, health care, and another 200 jobs.
President and CEO Paul Wellborn said the Oxford facility will be close to Interstate 20.
“As we were looking at areas for expansion opportunities, we wanted to continue our growth within the state of Alabama,” President and CEO Paul Wellborn said. “Oxford was very accommodating and helpful throughout the process.”
