MBCI, an industry leading manufacturer of metal roof and wall systems, held the Grand Opening celebration of its new 116,000 square foot insulated metal panel manufacturing facility in Mattoon, Ill. in late June. The event included a program, lunch and tour of the plant. More than 180 people were in attendance.
The program included speeches from Norm Chambers, Chairman, President and CEO of NCI Building Systems, Inc., Illinois State Senator Dale Righter, Director of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity David Vaught, Mattoon Mayor Tim Gover and Mark Dobbins, President of NCI’s Components Division.
NCI purchased the facility in Mattoon in 1991 but had to close its doors in 2008 when the commercial construction industry suffered severely from the national economic downturn. As Chambers stated, the success of the new product line has prompted the company to reopen this facility as an investment in the future.
Dobbins noted that MBCI was able to maintain connections with plant manager Brandon Cook and four other employees who had worked for NCI previously, and with the reopening of the Mattoon facility, was able to provide employment for these and 22 other individuals at the plant. He also said that MBCI looks forward to adding additional employment opportunities as product demand increases.
This is the second IMP manufacturing facility MBCI has opened since 2010. The first resides in Jackson, Miss.
