D.C.-based Framebridge is closing its Maryland facility, and concentrating production work at its operation in Kentucky.

After customers click on which frame they want, the custom framing startup’s facilities outside D.C. are where the frames are produced prior to delivery.

Located just outside the Beltway in Prince George’s County, the startup’s Lanham facility employed 40 full-time workers. They were offered the option to move.

“Framebridge has offered relocation packages for all affected full-time team members, while extending severance and job outplacement assistance for those who choose not to move,” spokesman Matt Carrington said in a statement.

Framebridge is coming off a year in which it raised a $16.7 million Series B, and inked big partnerships with the likes of Target and star designer Nate Berkus.

Behind the scenes, the company has also been making upgrades to its facility in Richmond, Kentucky. That meant the Maryland facility was no longer needed.

“As Framebridge continues its rapid growth, the company has made significant infrastructure and technology investments within its 60,000-square-foot Kentucky facility that will enable them to better serve customers at scale,” said Carrington.
