SHELBY, N.C. — Ivar’s Cabinet Shop is opening a $2.8 million dollar plant in Foothills Commerce Center near Shelby.

Salaries will vary by position, but will average $40,000 per year. The county’s overall annual wage is currently $34,899.

“North Carolina welcomes Ivar’s Cabinet Shop as it makes Cleveland County its base of operations for the East Coast,” said Gov.

Ivar’s Cabinet Shop, founded in 1966, makes display fixtures, showcases and shelving under the brand name Ivar’s Displays. The company utilizes the latest design and production technologies as it tailors products to fit the specific needs of retailers, distributors and manufacturers. The family-owned company will soon celebrate its 50th anniversary. Its new Shelby plant will serve national and eastern U.S. customers in order to reduce freight costs and delivery time.
