Minnich Manufacturing recently held an open house celebration to commemorate its move after more than 40 years at its downtown Mansfield location. Located in rural Ashland County, at 1444 St. Rt 42 in Mansfield, Ohio, the new facility provides the company with approximately 10,000 more sq. ft. to house its expanding product lines.

Situated on roughly 18 acres (7.3 ha) of land, the new site offers plenty of room for future expansion. The new building provides the company with greatly increased workspace and workflow efficiency.

The open house kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by tours of the facility and snacks served in the office area. The event was attended by the families of Minnich’s employees as well as the company’s vendors and clients.

Employees were on hand at workstations throughout the factory to explain each stage of the manufacturing and testing process.
