January 16, 2013,
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Brown Jordan International, the parent company for leading furniture brands Brown Jordan, Winston, Charter, Wabash Valley and La-z-Boy Outdoor, announced today a multi-million dollar capital investment plan to expand manufacturing capacity.
The capital investment will be made in its Haleyville, Ala. facility and is consistent with the company's strategy over the last two years of investing in technology and equipment that will prepare it for increased demand in its North American manufacturing facilities, a company press release states.
Similar to what has been done at other Brown Jordan International facilities, the capital investment will focus on modernizing the Haleyville facility with state-of-the-art equipment and machinery throughout, including robotic welding, automated buff and grind and high-speed powder-coated paint processes.
"We anticipate beginning to hire for the Haleyville facility sometime in the summer of 2013," Moriarty said. "This facility will service Brown Jordan International brands and will be very important in our growth plans. Obviously, we have a lengthy history in Haleyville and appreciate the talents of the workforce there."
