Marking its 60th anniversary, MFM Building Products has broken ground on a significant expansion project at its Coshocton, Oh., headquarters and manufacturing complex.
The manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products is adding nearly 50,000 sq. ft. to its production area and has purchased new production equipment to meet rising demand. MFM has been acquiring additional raw materials to ensure product availability for their customer base and the 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 project include razing a building on the company property, constructing new offices in the main headquarters building, and adding a new, state-of-the-art research & development laboratory for increased quality control and new product development. An additional 20 full-time employees will be hired as part of the expansion.
“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 president Tony Reis. “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.”
