Lawrenceburg wins Cabinets To Go’s national headquarters, 88 new jobs
NASHVILLE — Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd recently joined Cabinets To Go officials to announce the company’s plans to locate its national headquarters to Lawrenceburg, creating 88 new jobs.
Specializing in affordable kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities, Cabinets To Go opened its first store in 2008 and has grown to 49 locations in eight years.
Cabinets To Go will invest $9 million in the facility, which will consist of its national headquarters, warehouse and distribution center, East Coast customer care call center as well as retail space which will be used for training.
The company will also be relocating its main distribution center from Redlands, Calif. to Lawrenceburg, citing Tennessee’s central location and its proximity to many Cabinets To Go locations as the reason behind the decision.
“Tennessee’s geographic location is at the heart of the country, allowing businesses to connect to their customers faster. Our interstate system alone makes it possible to reach 60 percent of the U.S. population within an 11-hour drive or less,” Boyd said. “We appreciate Cabinets To Go for recognizing the advantages of doing business in our state and choosing Lawrenceburg for its new national headquarters. Welcome to Team Tennessee.”
“This move will allow us to capitalize on the strong talent pool in the state of Tennessee and to continue to build Cabinets To Go into the largest specialty retailer of kitchen cabinets in the United States,” Cabinets To Go President Jerry Burdock said. “Lawrenceburg’s central location also facilitates a more efficient and effective distribution network to the bulk of our customers allowing us to provide a much better service. We are extremely excited about Tennessee and the town of Lawrenceburg, where we will set up our 50th showroom location.”
Cabinets To Go is currently making upgrades to the 420,000 square foot facility, located at 3050 W.O. Smith Dr. Renovations are expected to be complete by this fall.
