PHOENIX — A building industry supplier is expanding operations in Tolleson with another building and plans to add 40 new full-time positions, according to a press release on the city’s website.

MiTek, which supplies integrated software, service, engineered products and automated solutions to the building industry currently operates in a 261,000 square-foot plant located in Tolleson and will expand into a neighboring 153,000 square-foot building.

“We are excited to bring new jobs to a market with great talent,” Mark Lee, MiTek president – Residential North America, said in the release.

“We look forward to adding new team members who will contribute to our culture and enable us to accelerate our efforts to deliver technologies that provide much-needed shelter and create thriving communities.”

Lee added it was only natural to further their commitment in the Valley, saying the company’s experience working with Tolleson and the Arizona Commerce Authority has been “nothing short of exceptional.”

The new facility will increase the operational footprint of the company by nearly 60%, according to the release.

“We are thrilled to learn of MiTek’s expansion and commitment to remain in the region, and just like they are committed to the success of their customers, we too believe that their success is our success,” Tolleson Mayor Anna Tovar said in the release.

The company will also make an initial $5 million investment in the facility and equipment, according to the release.

Tovar noted in the release that Tolleson is known as a major employment center in the West Valley and is home to more than 25 Fortune 500 companies.
