“Our company, US Pillars, was formed for the very purpose of economic development through manufacturing with makers who find great fulfillment in making shelves for book spaces,” Lisa Uhrik, US Pillars Co-Owner, said. “We relocated an existing company, Franklin Fixtures, from Cape Cod to Cookeville in 2015. Now, with the faith of Hörmann, US Pillars is expanding with these garage doors, a market that Hörmann plans to expand further with this new location that is more favorable for East Coast and Southeast Coast customers.”
