Prepac Manufacturing Ltd., a North American manufacturer of Ready-to-Assemble (RTA) furniture
will locate a new east coast furniture factory in Guilford County, creating 201 jobs and investing $27.1 million in a new 260,000 square foot factory in Whitsett.

The company’s new facility in North Carolina will help the company expand its markets and expedite shipments to consumers located along the entire eastern seaboard.
