Headquartered in Mocksville, North Carolina, Funder has three strategically located facilities.

In addition Funder has large volume panel lamination facilities in Hope, Arkansas, and Sebring, Florida.
Whatever your decorative surface needs, Funder has an innovative cost-effective solution.
The stateside story of Funder America began in 1973 with a group of U.S. investors constructing a 100,000 square foot plant in Mocksville, North Carolina, devoted exclusively to the production of quality melamine panels. This independently operated firm brought the most sophisticated equipment and technical expertise from the European technical resources to make the facility the most modern and complete of its type in the industry.
Through the ‘80’s Funder added a fabrication facility for component production. The ‘90’s brought the addition of two new laminating locations, as well as a packaging division.
Since the turn of the century, Funder has replaced 2 presslines in Mocksville, upgraded all CNC machinery in the components fabrication facility, and opened a new laminating facility in Sebring, Florida. In 2010, at the Mocksville facility, a brand-new powder coating line was added to Funder’s diverse and extensive offerings.
