MFM Building Products celebrates 50th anniversary

MFM Building Products, a manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products for the building industry, is celebrating the company’s 50th Anniversary.

MFM Building Products headquarters

MFM Building Products was founded in 1961 by Robert E. Simpson. Initially, the company manufactured products used for wrapping underground pipe to protect from water penetration and pipe contents becoming contaminated. MFM expanded this technology to develop sealing and waterproofing products for use within the general construction industry.


Today, MFM manufactures an array of weather barrier products that include low-slop roofing membranes, roofing underlayments, window and door flashing tapes, multi-purpose waterproofing membranes, construction and roof tapes, and HVAC duct and pipe wrap. MFM products are all made in the United States and sold through an extensive distributor network.

Time Capsule Project
The year 2011 also marks the 200th Anniversary of the City of Coshocton, Ohio. As part of the Bicentennial festivities, the city is assembling a Time Capsule from local businesses. MFM contributed to the Time Capsule by submitting a full presentation on the company, its history, product samples, company literature, and a list of current employees. The Time Capsule will be dedicated at a special ceremony on August 20 and be opened in the year 2061.

Earlier this year, original founder of MFM, Robert E. Simpson, passed away, but left the company in good hands through his sons. Robert S. Simpson serves as President, John S. Simpson serves as Vice President of Manufacturing and W. Wesley Simpson serves as Vice President of Finance.
