MIR Upgrades Kansas City Operations, Continues Western Expansion
Kansas City, MO – Midwest Industrial Rubber (“MIR”), the nation’s premier independent specialty fabricator and distributor of lightweight belting and conveyor accessories, is continuing its growth and expansion in the Midwest and out to the West Coast.
MIR recently moved its Kansas City operations from Swift Street in North Kansas City, to Dean’s Downtown business park in the heart of Kansas City. The move increases the company’s operating space from 14,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet. The increase in space will improve the company’s ability to support its continued growth by providing room for more production and fabrication equipment. The location will also function as a centralized fabrication facility to meet increased customer demands. “The creation of this center of excellence is just another example of the commitment we have made to our customers to ensure that MIR delivers quality product ahead of schedule,” Mike Bruhn, CEO said.
The company has also recently expanded their presence on the West Coast, opening a branch office in Orange, CA. The new branch was opened in response to increased market demand and to provide quicker response times for local customers.
“This is an extremely exciting time for the entire MIR organization,” Mike Bruhn said. “As we expand our national footprint, we are positioned to provide world class service to our customers from Coast to Coast.”
Founded in January 1980, Midwest Industrial Rubber, Inc. (MIR), part of Incline Equity Partners, is a privately-owned corporation specializing in the fabrication and distribution of lightweight conveyor belting and industrial conveyor products. The company provides value-added products and services through their more than 15 full-service sales and fabrication facilities and satellite locations across the United States.
