MIFAB Chicago announces expansion

Chicago-based commercial plumbing product manufacturer, MIFAB, announced a 68,000-square-foot building expansion to its present corporate headquarters on the south side of the city.

MIFAB stated the expansion of the current 60,000-square-foot building is needed to house additional inventory due to increased sales over the last two years, as well as the introduction of many new products scheduled for release in 2019. The building will add four shipping bays during the expansion.

The manufacturer noted “We are anticipating additional inventory space requirements for the new Quick Hub coupling line as well as the new Barracuda USC-approved stainless steel backflow line.” Both the Quick Hub coupling line and the Barracuda stainless steel backflow line are being rolled out in 2019.

Groundbreaking on the expansion is scheduled for spring 2019 with anticipated completion in the fall of 2019.
