Maintainer General Manager Shelley Morris tells us how they feel about the groundbreaking.
Maintainer’s administration says the plant addition will increase factory space by 30%; will cost over a million dollars to build, and will mean at least 15 new jobs.
The expansion, which is expected to be fully completed by Spring 2015, will add 17,750 square feet to the existing manufacturing facility. Maintainer also plans to add 3,000 square feet to its office space.
