Back in late 2020, the Coshocton County Port Authority and MFM Building Products announced an expansion project that was welcome news for many in Coshocton County.

From the Coshocton Tribune, “MFM Building Products is pursuing a two-phase expansion that will represent an approximate $8 million investment and 21 new full-time jobs to Coshocton.

Tiffany Swigert of the Coshocton Port Authority and Paul Bratton of MFM addressed the city council on the project earlier this week relating to the company seeking tax incentives via an enterprise zone agreement.

Swigert then addressed the issue with Coshocton County Commissioners and was scheduled to make a presentation to the Coshocton City Schools Board of Education at its regular meeting. Previous enterprise zone agreements were approved with Kraft Foods, McWane Ductile, and Annin Flagmakers. The agreements are subject to annual review.

MFM transitioned to an employee-owned corporation in 2017. It currently has 69 employees. It was founded in 1961 by Robert E. Simpson. It produces waterproofing and weather barrier products for the construction industry. It received its fifth consecutive Gold Key Award in 2019 from Rural Builder Magazine, ranking it in the top 10 percent of suppliers.

So how is the project coming?  We took our drone out to take a look at the project as of this week.
