Belgian Furniture Co, to Locate North American Headquarters in North Carolina

Feb. 21, 2014
The company will rennovate a building that once housed the operations of the Pickett Cotton Mill, which first opened more than 100 years ago. 

BuzziSpace Inc., based in Antwerp, Belgium, will rennovate a building that once housed the operations of the Pickett Cotton Mill, which first opened more than 100 years ago. The company will invest more than $1.75 million over the next five years in its North American headquarters to be located in High Point in Raleigh, N.C.

“BuzziSpace’s project marks a giant step forward in our manufacturing comeback, transforming a once vacant property into a development-ready site that will create good-paying, permanent jobs," said Governor Pat McCrory. "This will promote High Point and the Triad as a hub for manufacturing and innovation, and attract more businesses from around the world.”

BuzziSpace products focus on acoustics, ecology and flexibility. The company focuses on  recycling, environmentally friendly processing of materials and the sustainable use of raw materials and energy.

“The High Point facility will be a reflection of who we are, what we stand for,” said Tom Van Dessel, CEO of BuzziSpace.  “We feel strongly about creating a destination and a place that the local population will take pride in.  In this place, we can make a real difference in the community by investing in its rich history in furniture, and its skilled labor.”

The project was made possible in part by a performance-based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $100,000. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state.
