Leeds manufacturer to expand, add jobs

Leeds' M&B Manufacturing is expanding, adding jobs.

M & B Metal announced at the City Council meeting Aug. 20 that they are expanding.

Representatives from the Birmingham Business Council and M&B construction told the City Council that construction has begun on a 6,200-square-foot addition to the wire manufacturing plant. The $2 million project will accommodate equipment that will allow M&B to bring an additional part of their process in-house. The expansion will initially add three jobs.

This is the first time in 55 years that their building footprint has expanded.

M & B Metal, which is celebrating 75 years in business, is considered an industry leader as the only full-line domestic hanger manufacturer left in the U.S. This company supplies wire garment hangers and paper products to the dry cleaning and textile rental industries.
