“Adding jobs is always exciting,” said Michael Barron, plant manager, “and this expansion allows us to lay things out the way we want them, not the way they have had to be because of space limitations. A lot has changed at the plant over the years.” Comfort Bilt began operations in Mocksville in 1999 with just one product. Today, nine product lines are manufactured by 200 employees. Over the past 19 years, the Mocksville plant has manufactured more than 10 million stock and custom storm doors and windows, including many sold at Lowe’s and other home improvement stores. Comfort Bilt became the first tenant of the SouthPoint Business Park on US 601 North after its parent company, headquartered in Brookings, S.D., began seeking an East Coast location. According to Barron, the company desired a location in a growing area near an interstate, with competitive property prices, good utilities, and a skilled labor force where it could develop a good working relationship with city and county government. It found all of that in Davie County.
