UPDATE: Carolina Building Solutions Closes its Salisbury, NC Factory

I just leaned that Carolina Building Solutions has closed its Salisbury, NC factory and is moving the operations to the former Champion factory in Lillington, NC. CBS is owned by Champion Home Builders as is the Lillington factory which built the Genesis line of modular homes many years ago.

No word yet if the Salisbury factory will reopen as a Champion "HUD" production facility but that is the rumor.

An email sent out today about the closing of the CBS plant:

 Good Morning

I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now what’s going on here with the consolidation effort…Sad day to say the least. The good news is that the CBS Brand lives on! It will be produced at the Lillington, NC. Facility. Several Managers from Lillington, Including Wade Lyall from Corporate were here today to discuss just “what” they could handle building from our portfolio.

The end result was a great commitment to build our brand with making some changes to our “web-site” offerings…slimming down what we will offer.


Your guess is as good as mine as to the motive behind this move.

Nice to hear a solid Brand with excellent reputation will be continued. Hopefully, the "slimming" process is more like "nutri-system"
than major surgery.
