COSHOCTON, Ohio — MFM Building Products recently announced a substantial expansion project for 2021. This coincides with the company’s 60th anniversary being celebrated 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 their customer base and this new facility will accommodate this additional inventory. The building is planned to be completed by the fall of 2021, and 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 new, state-of-the-art Research & Development laboratory for increased quality control and new product development. 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," said 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.”
