COMFORT, Texas - Outdoor furniture manufacturer O.W. Lee will move its entire operation out of California and into Texas early 2021.
The manufacturer of patio furniture will leave its 157,000-square-foot facility in Ontario, California and invest $24 million into an existing 412,000-square-foot building in Comfort, Texas. Some of the company's 200 manufacturing employees will make the move - the rest it will have to hire for in Texas.
Lee will receive an abatement of between 25 and 50 percent over its first seven years in Comfort, reports the San Antonio Business Journal.
It's unclear exactly why the company chose to make the move. We will update this article when we learn more.
The family-owned O.W. Lee has made outdoor furniture in Southern California for more than 65 years.
