This expansion in Leesburg will create 150 additional jobs in southwest Georgia. Family-owned and operated for more than 65 years, the Woodgrain family of companies has become one of the largest millwork operators in the world.

Woodgrain also maintains Georgia-based manufacturing operations in Lee and Sumter counties and a distribution facility in Gwinnett County. The company has had a presence in the state since the early 1990s, employing more than 375 Georgians.

Woodgrain manufactures and distributes quality wood moldings, doors, and windows for customers including Georgia-based The Home Depot.

Due to increased product demand, the company will expand their current facility, located at 471 U.S. Highway 82 West in Leesburg, by 156,000 square feet. Expanded operations at Woodgrain Millwork are expected to begin by the third quarter of 2022. New positions will include careers in production, management, and maintenance.
