Welcome to the Twin City, we’ll get the door for you. Excel Interior Door, LLC plans to open a manufacturing and distribution facility on the campus of Union Cross Industrial Center in Winston-Salem (between I-40 and I-74/US 311). According to the NC Department of Commerce, the Alabama-based company is actually moving its headquarters here, too.

Overall, the company says it will invest $10.5 million in the expansion project and hire 69 employees at the facility (in supply chain and manufacturing roles) over the next five years. Crews will make wood interior doors in the 144,000-sqft building. The NC Department of Commerce says it could generate more than $2.38 million of revenue in the region annually.

Local leaders worked hard to bring this company to the Twin City. Commissioners approved an incentives package totaling $147,981 over five years and City Council offered up to $144,313 in incentives over five years.

No word yet on when construction plans to start.
