Barrette Outdoor Living — a Cleveland-based manufacturer of fencing, railing and outdoor living products — is hiring 250 individuals at its new manufacturing facility in Egg Harbor City.
"We are very excited to be opening this large facility in Egg Harbor City and hiring 150 individuals from the area. In addition, we anticipate hiring 100 more people in early 2016 when our manufacturing ramps up for the beginning of our busy spring selling season," said Laura Johnson, human resources manager for Barrette Outdoor Living, in a statement.
Available jobs include warehouse workers for production lines, assembly, machine and forklift operators, inventory and shipping clerks, supervisors and office support staff at the former Lenox China factory located at 545 Tilton Road.
The new facility in Egg Harbor City, according to a company representative, is part of Barrette Outdoor Living's plan to grow its existing manufacturing and distribution centers in Egg Harbor Township and Millville in order to "expand its two-step distribution fence and rail business on the East Coast."
Barrette Outdoor Living employs over 1,500 nationwide in 12 locations across the United States and Canada.
