MJB Wood Group Constructs Bristol, Indiana, Manufacturing Complex

MJB Wood Group, a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial wood products, started construction on a new 500,000 square-foot facility on a 37-acre lot near Bristol, Indiana. The project is expected to create 100 new jobs.

According to company officials the new facility, expected to open in the first quarter of 2022, will replace an older 228,000 square-foot facility that MJB has outgrown. Over the past five years MJB has experienced tremendous growth in the region, exceeding 18% year-over-year revenue growth.

"We are excited to invest in this new facility because of MJB's commitment to the vibrant RV industry in Northern Indiana and the surrounding areas. This new facility will improve the efficiency of inbound and outbound freight, which will allow MJB to deliver more freight on time, while respecting the tight receiving window of customers," said Scott Griggs, president of MJB Wood Group.

In addition to offering a more streamlined distribution experience for customers, the new MJB facility includes a 100,000 square-foot fabrication area that will allow MJB to offer custom services such as cut- to-size, CNC machining, moulding, kitting and light assembly, company officials said. The new facility will increase MJB's ability to meet the sourcing needs of customers in the immediate area and throughout the Midwest, including those in the RV industry.

"We applaud MJB Wood Group for selecting Elkhart County for its new facility, and we value our partnership with the company," said Chris Stager, president & CEO of the Economic Development Corporation of Elkhart County. "MJB has been sourcing and delivering diverse wood products for more than 45 years, and their new facility will allow them to improve efficiencies and provide a better overall customer experience."
