Woodgrain Millwork, with 29 production operations around the world, says it will invest more than $8 million over the next five years in North Carolina.

Woodgrain Millwork currently employs more than 180 people at existing facilities in North Carolina.
The project was made possible in part by a $635,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. That funding facility also supported an expansions by Stanley Furniture and by Ashley Furniture, both announced earlier this year.
