Florida vinyl products company opens new HigH point Facility

A 30,000-square foot building in southern High Point is the new home of Poly Vinyl Creations, a Florida-based company that makes vinyl, aluminum and steel products for sale primarily to fence contractors. Products made by the company are used for fencing, decking, railing, arbors, trellises and garden products.

The High Point location is the company’s third manufacturing and distribution facility, with two other in Florida and Georgia.

“one of the big motivations for this location is we’ve tried to strategically situate ourselves to deliver in a 500-mile radius,” said Jessica Burton, who is the company’s vice president of sales and marketing and the daughter of President Bob Burton. “my dad loves North carolina. The High Point- Greensboro area is very centrally located to reach customers in North carolina, Virginia and south carolina.”

Jessica Burton said the company found its new location with the help of Price Commercial Properties.

The company has hired three new employees for its High Point facility, according to a press release by the High Point economic Development corp., and could create up to 20 new jobs in the next several years.

Primarily specializing in hip hop, GoDi is looking for artist-producers who are willing to put some skin in the game and who are hungry to pursue the dream. she has one hip-hop artist, kenfolk, who is her main focus at the moment. “our message is pretty much God and the ecology and welfare of the people,” she said.
