Haefele breaks ground at NC- Ready for the Future

 Wednesday, April 6, 2022

Haefele America now bigger, improved and ready for the Future. Haefele America broke ground on April 4 with a massive $13 million expansion plan. Located in a large field between the street and the outer wall of the current Haefele America Co. Archdale, North Carolina warehouse, the expansion will add 94,200 sq. ft. of High-Rise Distribution Center space. That will bring the facility to 221,200 sq. ft. in total, increasing overall storage capacity by 60 percent.

“The expansion of our North Carolina warehouse is an investment in the future success of Haefele, but also that of our customers,” said Paul K. Smith, President of Haefele America Co. “Through this project we’ll be able to serve all of our customers in a multitude of better, more efficient ways – as well as reducing the company’s carbon footprint by adding solar power to our campus.”

The expanded facility will include a 501 kW solar system consisting of more than 1,100 panels. That investment alone is expected to provide approximately 75% of the total power use for the facility.

“The equipment and processes employed within our Archdale facility are about to receive a monumental upgrade,” said Jed Kilpatrick, Director of Operations for Haefele America Co. “In addition to increased storage capacity, we’ll be adding the latest automated conveyor lines and product pick systems which will improve responsiveness, efficiency and order accuracy.”

A number of Piedmont Triad-area and North Carolina based contractors are involved in the project including architectural plans developed by Winston-Salem’s West & Stem Architects, PLLC, site construction by Landmark Builders, also of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and solar power implementation by Yes Solar Solutions of Cary, North Carolina.

Total investment in facility upgrades and expansion for the project is $13 million. Construction is anticipated to be complete by fall 2022.
