Area Development
MCS Industries, a leading U.S. manufacturer of picture frames, will invest $11.1 million in expanding its warehousing and distribution facility. The company will also relocate its printing operations from Pennsylvania and construct a 215,000 square-foot facility in the new Westpark Logistics Center in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.

"I am proud that MCS continues to be a partner in diversifying our economy and growing the private sector in New Mexico," Governor Susana Martinez said. "Results like these make a strong case that New Mexico is becoming more competitive, creating more jobs for our families."

According to the Governor’s Office, Santa Teresa was competing with El Paso for the MCS expansion, which is expected to create up to 20 new jobs. MCS is an innovative, green manufacturing leader, producing wall and poster frames for North America's largest retail chains.

MCS is the largest Styrofoam recycler in the U.S., processing the material into a liquid form to use in frame manufacturing. Styrofoam accounts for 25 percent of the materials in landfills. MCS will locate a Styrofoam collection and processing operation to New Mexico to process materials for its products.
