United Furniture Looks to Expand
New details about a proposed economic development project suggest that United Furniture Industries may be expanding once again.
Project Combined II, an unnamed manufacturing company, is considering making improvements to two properties adjacent to United Furniture's main complex located off of Hackney Street in Lexington, according to government notices released Wednesday.
Davidson County and Lexington officials will hold public hearings next month about purchasing the properties for the company, so long as it maintains a certain amount of jobs and makes property improvements.
