COLUMBIA, S.C. – Masonite International, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of decorative interior doors and entry door systems, is expanding its existing Bamberg County operations. This expansion will result in the creation of 50 new jobs over the next year, with additional growth expected in the years to come.
Featuring a wide array of patented designs for frames, stain kits and building materials, Masonite International operates more than 70 locations around the world--with 37 sites in the United States alone. Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., the company employs more than 10,000 people worldwide.
The 50 new positions will allow Masonite’s Denmark, S.C. facility to add another auto line shift.
