HIGH POINT, NC - Classical Elements Inc., M2C Studio & Leyla Gans LLC are locating in High Point, North Carolina. The three companies owned by Stuart and Leyla Gans will operate in the historic mill building at 1200 Redding Drive and create approximately 30 jobs in the facility, which will serve as the headquarters location for all three companies. Classical Elements and M2C Studio are leaders in creative design, production, and service in the world of trim, drapery hardware and lighting. The companies offer lines of custom products, inspired by Stuart and Leyla's relentless travels and appreciation of visual arts. Their products are custom crafted to the exact specifications of each job's requirements. Recently, Leyla has taken her creative skills into jewelry that is inspired by travel, art and nature using textile techniques.

Stuart Gans, said, "High Point offers the opportunity for Classical Elements, M2C Studio and Leyla Gans LLC to meet the needs of continually growing markets. Compelling reasons for the location, in addition to being in High Point, the Home Furnishings Capital of the World™, were the historic nature of the 1200 Redding Building, the building's ease of upfit, the availability of talent in High Point and the central North Carolina location. We look forward to being part of the community."

Sandy Dunbeck, Director of High Point Economic Development Corporation and the 2021 Director for the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance, said, "We love to see thriving, creative manufacturing companies choose High Point. A project such as this by companies like Classical Elements, M2C Studio, and Leyla Gans LLC speaks to the strengths of High Point and Guilford County as leaders in manufacturing. We know the High Point community and our entire state, which has the largest manufacturing workforce in the Southeast U.S., offer the community college training and other workforce resources that will support the company's immediate and long-term growth."

Previously occupied by BuzziSpace, the building is in close proximity to the City of High Point’s Small-Scale Manufacturing target area and is also located in one of the City’s three Opportunity Zones.
