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.

You Wouldn’t Recognize The Place!

A lot has changed in the last couple of months since we started grading at 1940 New Harvest Road. Mr. Simpson, owner of Simpson’s Trucking and Grading, shown here with Kenneth, brought in a fleet of bulldozers and heavy equipment and he and his crew “went to town” on the property.

As of now the cul-de-sac is gone and the main area has been laid out and prepped for the new office and manufacturing facilities. The road has been shortened and the new cul-de-sac is in. The hills are now flat and several valleys have been filled in.

More to come soon...
