MBCI opening new IMP plant in Illinois

MBCIMBCI, an industry leading manufacturer of metal roof and wall systems, will be opening a new, 116,000 square foot insulated metal panel (IMP) manufacturing facility in Mattoon, Ill., in May. The new line doubles MBCI’s current IMP capacity. This is the second insulated panel line MBCI has opened in the past two years; the first being in Jackson, Miss. A third IMP manufacturing facility will be opening in Richmond, Va., later this year.

MBCI also will be adding one new panel profile to its Eco-ficient product line, which currently includes one standing seam roof panel, one R panel roof and wall profile and six wall panel profiles for both vertical and horizontal applications. This new 44 ½-inch profile will be used in interior wall and ceiling panel applications. Furthermore, an enhancement will be made to MBCI’s Eco-ficient Classic Series, increasing the width from 36 to 42 inches with flutes 8.4 inches on center.

Brad Johnson, general manager of Eco-ficient, says, “MBCI is committed to providing metal construction products that comply with the growing requirements for sustainability and energy efficiency. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities allow us to meet these demands while providing products and services that exceed industry standards, as is the case with all MBCI products.”
