This was a difficult and meaningful decision for Champion Homes.
Salisbury, NC (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Champion Home Builders, Inc.® has made the strategic decision to move production of its Carolina Building Solutions brand to the Lillington, North Carolina production facility, consolidating two plants. Production at the current Carolina Building Solutions facility in Salisbury, North Carolina is targeted to cease on March 14, 2014. This shift will allow Champion Homes to increase capacity and offer future improvements to Carolina Building Solutions products and services.
All orders for Carolina Building Solutions placed on or after Monday, January 20, 2014 will be fulfilled through the Lillington facility, which has built mobile and modular homes since 1999. Homes will be produced with the same pricing, specifications and sound construction methods that customers have relied on at the Salisbury facility. The current line-up of Carolina Building Solutions modular homes will remain and will be offered at the new facility, including ranches, cape cods and two-story homes.
“This was a difficult and meaningful decision for Champion Homes and its Carolina Building Solutions brand,” said Wade Lyall, Vice President, South Region for Champion Homes. “We are confident that our customers will be effectively served from our Lillington facility, and we are looking forward to sharing with them a secure future.”
All sales, service, engineering and administrative support staff will remain at Salisbury until March 14. Over the next 60 days, Champion Homes leadership will work with all Salisbury employees to ease the transition and maximize transfers to Lillington or other Champion Homes locations.
“It is with profound respect that we express gratitude to our Salisbury team for their years of exceptional work,” said Jack Lawless, CEO of Champion Homes. “We hope to retain as many of our team members as possible, and have asked everyone to evaluate their willingness and ability to relocate. We will provide them every possible means of support through this transition.”
