NASHVILLE – Cabinetry and flooring provider Cabinets To Go announced plans to expand flooring operations at its Lawrenceburg, Tennessee facility. The $6.5 million investment is expected to create 70 new jobs.

The company said funds will be used for equipment to manufacture its new brand of engineered hardwood flooring, Robusto Floors. In addition to flooring, Cabinets To Go recently added countertops and installation services to its kitchen and bath cabinetry offerings.

Cabinets to Go's national headquarters, main warehouse and distribution center were moved to Lawrenceburg in 2016.  “Just last year, Cabinets To Go made a major investment to make Lawrence County the hub for its distribution and corporate operations,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Cabinets To Go’s decision to expand its manufacturing capabilities in Lawrenceburg is a testament to the region’s strong workforce and a business environment in Tennessee that supports job creation."

“We have been thrilled with the support of the local community and the State of Tennessee, and look forward to growing Cabinets To Go in Lawrence County for many years to come,” added Jerry Burdock, CEO and president of Cabinets To Go.

Founded in 2008, Cabinets To Go is a specialty retailer of kitchen cabinets with 62 showrooms located nationwide. Company founder Tom Sullivan also founded Lumber Liquidators; he resigned from the flooring retail giant in December 2016.
