Award-winning company plans to add 45 positions
MUM Industries, Inc., the parent company to Integra Enclosures, StrongBox, and EMF, plans to grow their headquarters in the Northeast Ohio Region by adding 45 new positions. The Ohio Department of Development (ODOD) approved the project for tax credit assistance at its meeting today.
The company headquarters, located in Mentor, manufactures enclosures in various sizes and materials to protect electrical components from harsh environments. MUM Industries, Inc. has steadily grown its Northeast Ohio operations, receiving both a Lake-Geauga Fast Track 50 Award and Cleveland Top Workplaces Award in 2022. The company selected the Northeast Ohio Region for this upcoming expansion due to the cost efficiencies achievable here – from labor to tax rates.
Local, regional, and state economic development partners – including the city of Mentor, ODOD, JobsOhio, and Team NEO – worked collaboratively with MUM Industries, Inc. leadership to build the case for expanding in the Northeast Ohio Region.
“The City of Mentor was pleased to be able to participate, encourage, and aid in the expansion of MUM Industries, Inc. with our state and regional partners,” said Ken Filipiak, Mentor’s City Manager. “MUM Industries’ success is a prime example what happens when you provide a fertile climate like we have in Mentor for business growth.”
“The Northeast Ohio Region is a perfect match for MUM Industries, Inc. to build its roots, given the exceptional legacy – and current strength – of the manufacturing industry here,” said Bill Koehler, Team NEO’s chief executive officer. “We are confident they will continue to grow with their innovative enclosures for many years to come. Along with our local partners, ODOD and JobsOhio, we congratulate MUM Industries, Inc. on its expansion and look forward to working with the company to ensure their long-term success here.”
