Lexington has provided a strong foundation for industry in the area since its incorporation in 1828. With a heritage in furniture and textiles, the Lexington industrial portfolio has diversified and grown to include outstanding companies such as Halyard Health (formerly Kimberly-Clark Corporation); PPG Industries; Jeld-Wen, Inc.; Roehrig Engineering; Arneg USA; Border Concepts; Vitacost; Masterbrand Cabinets, Inc.; Chesapeake; Image Wizards and Valendrawers. Additionally, Save-A-Lot and United Furniture selected Lexington for their business model and because of Lexington's prime location in the heart of the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina.
Economic development and expansion continues to occur in Lexington as shown by MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc. who on October 23, 2015, held its ribbon cutting for its consolidation of three previous buildings into a 137,000 square foot production facility, formerly occupied by Diebold, in the Lexington Business Park. This new facility will accommodate its current 100 associates with plans to hire an additional 38 full-time associates within its first six months of operation. MasterBrand’s general manager stated in a recent article published in the local newspaper, The Dispatch, that it is beneficial to the company to have a community, such as Lexington, that is used to furniture manufacturing and a location that is previously a production facility. Lexington proudly welcomes MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc. to its new facility and is excited about the job opportunities that will be forthcoming for the citizens of Lexington.
