M&M Industries Eyes Mid-Summer 2021 to Start Operations

LORDSTOWN, Ohio — Pending state and local approval, M&M Industries Inc. looks to add its fourth manufacturing location at the former Magna plant here.

In a statement released late Friday morning, the company said the Lordstown plant will manufacture “current and future innovations for M&M.” The company looks to begin operations in mid-summer 2021.

“The people of Lordstown are what stood out to us,” President and CEO Glenn Morris said in the release. “These folks in Ohio represent the very best of our nation. It will be an honor to be a part of their community.”

Founded in 1986, the Chattanooga, Tenn.-based company manufactures pails and packaging for pool chemicals, bioscience, laboratory, pharmaceuticals, and specialty paint and food products. It operates two plants in Chattanooga and one in Phoenix, Ariz.

At special meetings held Nov. 9, the Lordstown Village Council and Lordstown Local School District board of education OKd a 75%, 15-year property tax abatement for the project, which will be located at the former Magna Seating plant at 1702 Henn Parkway, Warren.

M&M looks to employ 106 at the Lordstown location at the end of five years.

The former Magna plant produced seating systems for the Chevrolet Cruze. When GM closed its Lordstown assembly plant, Magna halted its operations here, laying off 120 workers.
