MFM Building Products Expansion to Add Nearly 50,000 Square Feet
April 7, 2021
MFM Building Products announced an expansion project for 2021, which coincides with the company’s 60th anniversary in 2021. The company hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for local dignitaries and media on March 19.
The thrust of the expansion project is adding close to 50,000 square feet to the production area and the acquisition of new production equipment to meet the rising demand for orders. MFM has been acquiring additional raw materials to ensure product availability for its customer base; the company expects the new facility to accommodate the additional inventory. The building is planned to be completed by the fall of 2021, with the new production equipment to be installed and operational by early 2022.
Other aspects of the expansion project include razing a building on the company property, constructing new offices in the main headquarters building, and the addition of a research and development laboratory. In total, the company expects to hire an additional 20 full-time employees as part of the expansion project.
“The expansion project is the result of continued company growth and the company’s commitment to meeting the needs of our customers today and in the future," says Tony Reis, president. "With this investment, we hope to introduce new waterproofing projects to our portfolio of existing waterproofing membranes. As an ESOP company, there is a lot of excitement among our employees as MFM continues to grow.”
