Edison, NJ - Area rug suppliers Due Process Stable Trading Company has purchased a 91,000-square-foot warehouse facility in Lumberton, N.C. to serve as the new home for the company's operations.
Since 2003, Due Process has operated from a 45,000-square-foot facility it leased in here. The company said it will retain a portion of its offices in New Jersey following the move.
The plan now is to invest nearly $1.4 million over the next three years in the opening of this new distribution center.
"The purchase of this warehouse provides us the needed space to support the expansion of our operation and allow us to meet the growing needs of our customers," said David Grasse, president of Due Process. "We selected North Carolina because of its robust textile industry and its crucial proximity to seaports."
In relocating to this larger facility, Due Process also plans to create 45 new jobs to support its growing operations.
"Due Process LLC's decision to locate this facility in Robeson County is a big win for the region and state," said Sharon Decker, North Carolina Secretary of Commerce. "Our commitment to spurring economic growth continues to bring good-paying, high-skilled jobs for North Carolina families."
Due Process offers a large and diverse product line of in-stock full-size rugs and rug sample program, with a focus on the luxury segment. Its wholesale product line includes intricate hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs imported primarily from India, Nepal, Pakistan, and China.
