MFM Building Products, a manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products for the building industry, is embarking on a substantial expansion project for 2021, which coincides with the company’s 60th anniversary. The company hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on March 19.
The expansion 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.
The project includes razing a building on the company property, constructing new offices in the main headquarters building, and the addition of a new 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.
“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,” says Tony Reis, MFM president.
