CEDAR HILL, Texas — MJB Wood Group LLC, a manufacturer and distributor of industrial wood products, has opened a new facility in Tijuana.

The company said the expansion, made possible through a strategic long-term agreement with global technology group Bucher Industries, represents its commitment to enhancing its supply chain and manufacturing capabilities across North America. 

With the opening of this new facility, MJB Wood Group strengthened its position in Mexico, now boasting seven locations within the country. This move is integral to MJB's strategy to meet the growing demands of the North American market and to offer more effective nearshoring solutions to US companies. 

In 2023, the FDMC 300 ranked company (#20) announced several expansions, including new facilities in Mexico City and Puebla, Mexico, and a 200,000-square-foot facility in Alabama.

Scott Griggs, president and CEO of MJB Wood Group, emphasized the significance of this expansion: "As MJB executes on our targeted growth strategy across Mexico, further investment in Tijuana provides the critical platform to meet the needs of the entire market. Through established first-class warehouse services and soon-to-be light manufacturing, MJB is ready to expand nearshoring opportunities to US companies within Tijuana.” 

The new Tijuana facility is strategically located to optimize logistical operations, offering MJB an enhanced capacity to serve both the burgeoning Mexican manufacturing economy and US businesses looking to benefit from nearshoring advantages.
