CEO Richard Morrison recognized and thanked seven original teammates who have been in service to the entity since inception.
The entity was initially dedicated to wind blade manufacturing. By 2008 turbine blade length had outgrown the capacity of the facility so MFG relocated blade production to the new MFG South Dakota plant. MFG Texas now produces smaller turbine parts and provides blade repair and reconditioning services for the wind industry.
In 2016 MFG refocused it’s capabilities to low pressure molding technologies to meet regional market demand for high quality FRP parts and products at low to medium volume.
