COSHOCTON, Ohio — MFM Building Products, a manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products for the building industry, has recently finished a substantial expansion project that began in February 2021.
The thrust of the expansion project was adding 48,000 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 the new facility now accommodates this additional inventory. The building, which was planned to be completed by the fall of 2021, was finished in June 2022 due to extended lead times for raw materials. The exterior portion of the facility was completed in November.
Other aspects of the expansion project included constructing new offices in the main headquarters building, and the addition of a new, state-of-the-art research and development laboratory for increased quality control and new product development. Once the production equipment is fully operational, the company expects to hire additional full-time employees.
"We definitely had some setbacks with the current state of the supply chain, which caused some delays in the completion date," said Tony Reis, president. "Now that we are finished, we are focused on meeting the needs of our customers and hope to be introducing several new waterproofing products to our portfolio. As an ESOP company, there is a lot of excitement among our employees as MFM continues to grow."
