MJB Wood Group, LLC, a leading manufacturer and distributor of industrial wood products, held a grand opening ceremony for its new 500,000 square-foot facility on a 38-acre lot near Bristol, Indiana, on July 27. The new MJB facility has replaced an older 228,000 square-foot facility in the area that MJB has outgrown.

The new facility increases MJB’s ability to meet the sourcing needs of customers in the immediate area and throughout the Midwest, including those in the RV industry. Over the past five years, MJB has experienced tremendous growth in the region, exceeding 18% year-over-year revenue growth.

“We are excited to open 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.

“We have invested tens of millions of dollars in our new facility in Elkhart County because of the area’s strategic importance to the RV industry,” said Jeff Messick, executive vice president of MJB Wood Group. “Elkhart County manufactures 80% of the recreational vehicles on the road today, and the industry dates back nearly a century. More than a dozen major manufacturers of RVs call Elkhart County home, and we’re proud to call Elkhart home as well.”

The new facility employs 100 people, twice the number the current facility employs. Stonemont Financial Group developed the project and ARCO Construction Company served as general contractor.

Officials are still investigating what caused a midday fire that destroyed the Timber Products Ampine Division particleboard mill near Martell, California, July 25.

All workers who were in the building at the time of the fire made it out safely, but the plant was heavily damaged days before it was to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The Amador County Sheriff’s Office said it appears the plant is a “total loss.”

The 135,000-square-foot timber facility employed 145 people.

According to the company, the Ampine plant made high-quality particle boards used for kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

In celebration of their 25 year anniversary, West Wood Products has opened their third location right outside of Charleston, South Carolina. With its close proximity to a major port and its central location along the East Coast, West Wood Products is excited to have a true nationwide footprint.

The Charleston facility is 60,000 square feet with a state-of-the-art finishing line that is capable of finishing panels up to 5′ wide and 12′ long. The substrates available at this location include MDF, Particleboard, and Plywood.

Coming soon to this location, they will offer prefinished panels, primed panels, drawer sides, drawer bottoms, and other components.

The Charleston, South Carolina, location joins facilities in Long Beach, California and Houston, Texas.
