MESQUITE, Texas — Morrison Products broke ground on a 24,000 square foot expansion to the company’s Mesquite, Texas facility. The expansion will increase the total square footage of the plant to 102,000 square feet and expand production capacity.

“The expansion to our Mesquite facility will allow us to double our production volume,” said Mike Chapman, vice president of manufacturing for the company. “Adding capacity allows us to grow our business and respond quickly to the changing needs of our customers.”

Morrison Products opened its Mesquite facility in 1984, with 24,000 square feet of production and office space. In 1994, the company doubled the size of the facility, and further expansions in 2004 and 2006 brought the plant to its current size of 78,000 square feet.

“We have been a part of the Mesquite community for the past 37 years,” said Rob McPhail, Mesquite plant manager. “This expansion will allow us to continue growing and providing good job opportunities to the area for many years to come.”

Morrison Products, which also sells under the Lau brand, is a manufacturer of fans for the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning industry. With eight strategically located facilities in two countries, Morrison Products can react quickly to the needs of its customers, shortening the supply chain and saving time and money.
