Expansion Extends MRPC’s Capabilities and Enhances Positive Work Environment
BUTLER, Wis. – MRPC, a single-source provider of medical device components and assemblies, celebrates two major achievements this month: recognition by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel as a 2014 Top Workplace in Southeastern Wisconsin and the grand opening of their 15,000-square-foot facility expansion.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces award is based on anonymous employee feedback from 235 local companies; a full list of recipients was featured in a special section published in the Journal Sentinel on June 8, 2014. A family-owned company since 1921, MRPC has grown to accommodate 120 employees in Butler, Wis. and 20 employees at their Largo, Fla. plant. This honor marks the third consecutive year that MRPC has been recognized by its employees as a top workplace.
“This award is a testament to MRPC’s collaborative, innovative atmosphere, which enables employees to succeed and produce the best results for our customers,” said Greg Riemer, President of MRPC. “Our exceptional staff is the driving force behind MRPC’s success and leadership in our field.”
MRPC’s major expansion, which broke ground in May 2013, brings the total square footage of their Milwaukee plant to 100,000 square feet. The new addition opened in January and features additional cleanrooms, office space and employee support space. MRPC invested $2.5 million in the expansion, which will allow the company to grow 10 to 15 percent annually over the next five years, as the company plans to hire 35-40 new employees in the Milwaukee area. The total cleanroom manufacturing space is now 35,000 square feet, which enables MRPC to meet increased demand for silicone molding, multiple-material molding, micromolding, medical molding and thermoplastic molding, while also adding high-tech jobs in the Milwaukee area in the medical device manufacturing industry.
“We are committed to investing in Milwaukee and the medical device manufacturing industry,” Riemer said. “MRPC is continually evolving to maintain our position as industry leaders on the cutting edge of technology, and this expansion supports our continued growth and innovation.”
