CBC Americas Corp. has announced plans to invest $3.5 million to strategically relocate its headquarters and East Coast warehousing to North Carolina by summer’s end.
According to Mike Ozimek, CEO of CBC Americas, the move will allow CBC Flooring, one of its divisions, to better service its expanding East Coast customer base from a more centralized location while creating 100 jobs.
Seventy jobs with average annual salaries of $85,962 will be created when CBC Flooring moves into its Carey, N.C., headquarters this summer. Additionally, 30 warehouse-related positions with average annual salaries of $36,128 will be created when CBC Flooring consolidates its East Coast warehousing to Mebane, N.C., later this year, according to Ozimek.
CBC Flooring will retain its West Coast warehouse based in Torrance, Calif., said Chip Braulick, director of CBC Flooring. “Having centralized warehousing on both coasts, along with sales and marketing headquartered in North Carolina, will enable us to be more efficient, reduce costs and provide better service to our customer base.”
According to Braulick, this move is also in preparation for expansion of the overall business, including recent additions of indoor/outdoor vinyl treads and product line extensions of its luxury vinyl tile (LVT) collection with an 8mil construction targeting the multi-family market segment.
