Geiger International, a manufacturer of premium wood case goods, seating and occasional furniture for commercial and residential interiors, plans to expand in North Carolina with a new facility in Burke County.

The company plans to invest $3.7 million during the next three years in Hildebran.

According to a statement released by the Office of North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue, the project was made possible in part by a $128,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.

"North Carolina is known worldwide for manufacturing top quality furniture for the past century," said Gov. Bev Perdue. "Geiger International recognizes that distinguished history, the importance of the furniture industry to the Hickory area and the top-ranked business climate we have built in North Carolina."

Geiger International is a subsidiary of Herman Miller, Inc., a globally recognized leader and innovator in furnishings for the office, home, healing and learning environments. The company's products are distributed in more than 140 countries and often sold through the architectural and design community.  Geiger's current facility in Hickory has 24 full-time employees. This project will incorporate the Hickory operation in an updated and larger facility in Hildebran.

The average annual wage for the new jobs will be $33,754 plus benefits. The average wage for a manufacturing associate will be $30,981 plus benefits. The Burke County average annual wage is $30,784.

"By establishing new and expanded operations in Hildebran we will create greater operational efficiencies and reduce our costs, enabling us to better serve our customers as we grow our business and create new opportunity for employees," said Steve Gane, President of Geiger.
