COMING EARLY 2018

Why the Decision Was Made

In 1994, Kenneth Mincey purchases 11.5 acres across the street from the main manufacturing facility at 4321 Browns Bridge Road. In 2016, the decision is made to begin the rezoning process for the land so that a new, more technically advanced panel production facility can be built there. This new facility would replace the aging 65,000 sq. ft. panel plant currently located approximately a half mile east of the main plant. The rezoning was approved in the fall of 2016.

In late December 2016, early January 2017, it became apparent that due to the record setting year for sales and production combined with the addition of several new long term contracts, the new facility would be unable to keep up with the demand.

After several weeks of investigating and weighing all the pros and cons, the tough business decision was made to, after 40 years, move Mincey Marble.

On January 25th, 2017 during Kenneth's 82nd birthday celebration, Donna Mincey announces that Mincey Marble would be moving the production facilities, Corporate Office and Design Center, to a new location in Hall County.

Phase I

The Mincey's purchase 80 acres in the Gainesville Business Park, Gainesville, GA, 10 miles north of our current location. The new site will house a 350,000 sq. ft., state of the art manufacturing facility along with a 30,000 sq. ft. Corporate Offices and a Design Center. The new facilities are expected to be fully operational during the first quarter of 2018.

Phase II
It's Building Time!

Once the "ground work" for the building was completed, construction on the footprint of the building started in earnest. The forms for the base were put into place and the concrete trucks moved in. The footers and the floor have now been poured, leveled and smoothed.
