US Pillars is also acquiring a wood door product line from Hörmann.

US Pillars LLC has announced plans to expand manufacturing operations at its facility in Cookeville, Tennessee. The shelving manufacturer will invest $981,000 into the project, generating 56 new jobs for the community. US Pillars is also acquiring a wood door product line from Hörmann. The company hopes the acquisition will expand its manufacturing capabilities and overall facility footprint.

In a recent quote, Lisa Uhrik, co-owner, US Pillars, said, “It's a great story of how Tennessee helped Hörmann locate here, and how Hörmann is in turn using their influence to strengthen and grow another Tennessee-based company. Our company, US Pillars, was formed for the very purpose of economic development through manufacturing with makers who find great fulfillment in making shelves for book spaces. We relocated an existing company, Franklin Fixtures, from Cape Cod to Cookeville in 2015. Now, with the faith of Hörmann, US Pillars is expanding with these garage doors, a market that Hörmann plans to expand further with this new location that is more favorable for East Coast and Southeast Coast customers.”
