Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG; Ashtabula, OH) is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. Founded in 1948, the family-owned company said it has become a leader in the evolving world of composites and reinforced plastics.
|In 1969, MFG built the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. All together now: Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Meyer wiener . . . .|
MFG currently employs nearly 2,500 people at 13 manufacturing facilities across North America, serving specific market needs, including parts and products, for automotive, commercial truck, HVAC, material handling, construction and water treatment, and wind energy turbine applications.
In addition to the manufacturing plants, two dedicated in-house support facilities—MFG Research and MFG Design Center—are among the largest and best-equipped in the composites industry, according to the company. In the area of development of composite materials for new applications, MFG claims to be a “recognized pioneer," notably for automobile body and structural parts, pleasure watercraft, commercial long-haul trucks and wind turbines.
