ASHLAND, Ala. (AP) – An east Alabama cabinet factory is planning a $15 million expansion that will create more than 200 new jobs.

Gov. Kay Ivey’s office says Wellborn Cabinet Inc. will add four buildings to its plant in Ashland, which makes bath and kitchen cabinets. The project includes a mill, a paint facility, day care and health facilities.

Ivey and other officials joined the company for a groundbreaking at Wellborn Cabinet, the largest industrial employer in the county and a leading U.S. cabinet maker. It already employs more than 1,300 people in Clay County.
