Officials say a new manufacturing and distribution plant in Archdale should help put a dent in the housing shortage across the state, according to reporting from The High Point Enterprise.

When it gets up and running, Structural Building Solutions will crank out enough roof trusses, floor trusses, wall panels and other components to supply four or five new single-family homes per day, said company President Scott Austin.

In a years time in one shift, we should be doing 1,200 to 1,500 units in a year. So its a lot, he said.

The newly built, 120,000-square-foot plant off Archdale Road was developed by Crescent Communities of Charlotte to service residential builders primarily in that region, as well as the Raleigh area.

Austin said Crescent awarded the new plant its first job producing floor trusses for a large subdivision its developing in the Charlotte area.

Both Crescent and Structural Building Solutions are subsidiaries of Sumitomo Forestry Group, a comprehensive timber and wood products company based in Japan. One of its major lines of business is residential construction.

It announced the $19.5 million plant, which is at 300 Roelee St., just south of Interstate 85, in December 2022, pledging to create 129 jobs by 2027.

It represents a major expansion southward for Structural Building Solutions, which currently operates a single location in Maryland.
