Stanley, NC – Blum has added two new hinge manufacturing lines to its North Carolina production facility to manufacture its new COMPACT BLUMOTION hinges.

These new lines have allowed Blum to add six new team members to its production facility just north of Charlotte, NC. This 450,000 square foot facility also manufactures TANDEM plus BLUMOTION, METABOX, SOLO and STANDARD runners; plus CLIP top and COMPACT hinges. Work is already under way to add another assembly line for a new TANDEM plus BLUMOTION runner set to be launched in the summer of 2012. With these two new hinge manufacturing lines Blum will be able to closely control inventories and meet unexpected surges in demand. This is one of many examples of Blum’s dedication to manufacturing in the U.S. for the U.S. market.

COMPACT BLUMOTION is Blum’s face frame hinge with soft closing integrated into the hinge cup. They will be available in overlays from 5/16” to 1-9/16” and offer three-dimensional door adjustment. The BLUMOTION feature can also be deactivated on one hinge for smaller or lighter doors. Learn more about COMPACT BLUMOTION at » blum.com/compact.
