Archdale-Trinity has a manufacturing-based economy with a concentration in the furniture and furniture-related industries. There is strong diversity within that base, ranging from the international headquarters of Sealy, Inc. to premier furniture hardware distributor Häfele America. Both companies are in a growth mode, adding both jobs and facilities. Locally owned DAR/RAN Furniture focuses on case goods, while Packaging Corporation of America is an industrial control and packaging firm. Costa & Grissom Machinery Co., Inc. is the sole importer of Costa PC controlled sanding machines in the U.S., and Meredith Transport, Inc. offers long or short term warehousing, consolidation, cargo transfers, local drayage and freight-forwarding.
Ace/Avant Concrete Construction (a concrete contractor that has constructed more than 150 million square feet of industrial floors and tilt-up wall panels) and Hubbell Industrial Controls are leading industrial businesses in the area.
