Columbus, OH – MPW Industrial Services, North America’s leading provider of integrated, technology- based industrial cleaning, facility management, water purification and container management services, today announced it will invest $4.4 million to expand its Columbus Region presence with an additional facility in Union Township. The company will also add 25 new jobs to its roster over the next three years.
“Central Ohio has been MPW’s home from the very start, so it’s only fitting that we choose to invest and expand in the Columbus Region,” said Monte Black, founder and CEO, MPW Industrial Services. “The company’s continued growth has spurred a need for a larger facility and more engineering and IT expertise, and there is no better spot to expand and find that niche workforce than here.”
MPW’s expansion will be a new, 40,000-square-foot building on its existing campus at 9711 Lancaster Road SE in Union Township. The company’s $4.4 million investment will go toward new construction costs, infrastructure investments, machinery and equipment, and furniture and fixtures.
The company will add 25 new, engineering-focused jobs over the next three years, with hiring expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014. MPW currently employs approximately 2,500 people at more than 40 locations nationwide, with more than 300 employees in the Columbus Region alone.
