Coshocton, Ohio – MFM Building Products, a manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products for the building industry, has announced an expansion project for 2021. This coincides with the company’s 60th anniversary this year. MFM hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on March 19.
The expansion project will add close to 50,000 square feet to the production area, the company announced, which will lead to 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 project include razing a building on the property, 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. In total, the company expects to hire an additional 20 full-time employees as a result of the 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. 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,” said Tony Reis, MFM company president.
