Reeb Millwork opens doors in Mocksville

MOCKSVILLE – The North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority has awarded the town of Mocksville a $100,000 building reuse grant that will facilitate a 10-job expansion as well as renovations at Reeb Millwork.

The grant is part of a total capital investment of $320,451. The company custom-manufactures and distributes millwork products such as entry doors, interior doors, columns and accessories stairs across the eastern United States.

“Opening doors in Davie County is what we continue to do as Reeb brings new jobs and opportunities to our community,” said Davie County Economic Development President Terry Bralley. “With Reeb, Davie County now hosts one of the largest distributors of custom mill products on the east coast.”

Reeb Mocksville located at 346 Bethel Church Road, is one of five east coast branches for the family-owned door distribution company. Building One, as it’s referred to, is 242,000 sq. ft. and sits on 29 acres. The building and property, formerly King Sash & Door, was purchased by Reeb in 2010 in order to expand operations and offer full-line service to the Carolinas, southern Virginia and northeast Georgia.

The Mocksville branch opened with a staff of 45 people and six shipping docks. Now the company employs a staff of 110 and operates 19 shipping docks, according to office manager Scott Rush. “We’ve been growing and hiring and things are going well.”

Securing this grant will bring approximately 10 new jobs to the Mocksville location. Reeb is looking to fill positions for assemblers, warehouse, drivers and customer service. The company offers a comprehensive benefits package for employees that includes medical, dental, vision, paid time off and a 401K retirement program.

At each of its five locations, the company makes an effort to get involved in the local community in the form of hands-on training and education, and community outreach.

“We were happy to assist their current growth needs to make this possible,” Bralley said. “The talented craftsmanship of our workforce coordinates with the vision and talent of Reeb’s management as they open new markets and experience tremendous growth at this location.”

As the company continues to grow, so will the number of jobs. Reeb has grown consistently over the last three decades and is now the largest distributor of exterior doors on the east coast working with over 3,500 dealers and their customers.

To aid in the recent growth, Reeb Mocksville will be undergoing renovations that include installing more energy efficient lighting in the warehouse, adding additional shipping docks, upgrading bathrooms and the breakroom, expanding office space and adding a showroom.

In Davie County, the company assembles interior and exterior doors made of wood, fiberglass and steel. The company creates an array of both custom specialty doors and standard doors that are sold by home improvement stores and contractor yards throughout the area. Each is built on a per-order basis with a three-day turnaround time for stock products, according to Rush.

Davie County resident and Reeb’s director of product, Mike Crume, who began working for the company in 2013, has had a positive experience stating, “Great people throughout the organization help drive everyone to improve themselves, as well as the products and services provided to our customers.”

“Reeb is truly unique in offering a tremendous amount of growth opportunities,” says Crume.

As for the working environment one can expect, he added, “It’s built upon a foundation of core values that resonates through the company. It’s really a great place to work.”
