COLUMBIA, S.C. – Maxwood Furniture, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of bedroom furniture, today announced plans to locate its new distribution center in Marion County. The company’s $1.8 million investment is projected to create 21 new jobs.

Maxwood Furniture is a family-owned and operated wholesale and import business that specializes in the design, production and distribution of solid wood bed and furniture products. Since launching 15 years ago, the company has grown to manufacture four distinct brands and many custom offerings.
