ASHLAND, Alabama — Governor Kay Ivey joined the leaders of Wellborn Cabinet Inc. today to formally announce a $15 million expansion project that will ultimately create over 200 jobs at the company’s plant in rural Clay County.
Wellborn, a family-owned maker of kitchen and bath cabinets, said the project expands its manufacturing capabilities in Ashland with the addition of a planer mill and a paint facility. Altogether, the project adds four buildings to its Ashland complex, growing its total size to 2.2 million square feet.
The project includes healthcare and daycare facilities for Wellborn’s workforce in Clay County, which today exceeds 1,300 people.
“Wellborn Cabinet makes high-quality, in-demand products right here in Alabama, and it’s exciting to see the company expand its presence in its hometown of Ashland,” Governor Ivey said.
