Wood products manufacturer Woodgrain Millwork, Inc. announced it is building a $4-million pellet mill at its Lenoir manufacturing site along Complex Street that will create 15 new full-time jobs.
The 15,000-square-foot project, which is expected to be completed this spring, will manufacture and package wood fiber pellets to be used for animal bedding and fuel products. Woodgrain Millwork will sell its products to retail outlets and distribution centers.
“We are really excited to continue to grow on site,” Woodgrain Millwork Eastern Regional Manager Robb Hitch said. “From an environmental standpoint, this will allow us to use 100 percent of the (wood) fiber that is on site at all times.”
