The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (CST) at 105 Plank Road in Shawano, Wisconsin, according to the company's news release.
“The opening of our new Shawano manufacturing facility is a momentous occasion worth celebrating,” said Curt Ignacio, president/CEO of Marion Body Works. “This ceremony will not only commemorate the continued success and growth of Marion’s presence in the industry, but also the emergence of new jobs in the Shawano and surrounding northeastern Wisconsin communities.”
The new Shawano facility is Marion’s second operating plant in Wisconsin, just 22 miles east of their main headquarters.
Over the past five months, Marion Body Works said its team has been transitioning the commercial truck body line into the new facility. Covering 113,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 7,000 square feet of office space, the expansion carries a goal of enhancing throughput and acting as a catalyst for the continued growth of the product line, according to Marion Body Works.
