MJB Wood Group, a manufacturer and distributor of industrial wood products, recently held a ground-breaking ceremony for a new 500,000-square-foot facility on 37 acres near Bristol, Ind. The new MJB facility will replace an older 228,000-square-foot facility in an area that MJB has outgrown, officials said, and is expected to open in the first quarter of 2022. The expansion will increase MJB’s ability to meet the sourcing needs of customers in the immediate area and throughout the Midwest, they added.

“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 the company to offer custom services, such as cut-to-size, CNC machining, moulding, kitting and light assembly.

The new facility will employ 100 people, twice the number the current facility employs.
