By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -
Bassett Furniture Industries plans to expand its operations in Henry County, adding 25 new jobs during the next three years, officials announced Wednesday.
The company will invest $1.5 million to increase local manufacturing capacity and support operations to grow its custom casual dining business, according to a news release from Gov. Bob McDonnell’s office.
“Bassett Furniture Industries is a true Virginia success story, and we are glad the company has called the Commonwealth home since its founding in 1902,” McDonnell said in the release. “Bassett employs hundreds of Virginians and has grown its business to serve customers across the United States and internationally. With a successful history in Henry County dating back more than 100 years, it is fitting for Bassett to expand here and demonstrates its utmost confidence in the local community and workforce. This expansion will continue to allow Bassett to leverage its customization capabilities and innovation and maintain its lead in the furniture industry.”
