Matt Blomfield sees a market need for flexible control solutions and service for the rapidly growing industrial automation industry.
Blomfield officially launches MBI Automation after developing the business part time and on the side.
MBI Automation rents its first space, a 1,500-square-foot facility in Wyoming, Mi.
The company hires its first full-time Controls Engineer.
MBI Automation doubles its rental space to meet increased demand for its repair and servicing.
The company picks up momentum and increases its staff to have three full-time Controls Engineers.
MBI Automation embarks on a strategic planning process and hires its first non-engineering position to focus on business development and sales.
Additional non-engineering positions are created to support the company’s growth. The company’s staff now includes a repair specialist and office manager.
MBI Automation purchases its own 7,800-square-foot facility and moves its operation there.
The company continues to grow and fulfill its commitment to customers.
