As Marian’s markets have grown, we have carefully acquired compatible businesses to meet customer demand for increased output. In 1984, Marian acquired the JJ. Glenn Company in West Chicago, IL, an established and respected supplier to the electronics industry since 1929.
In 1990, Marian expanded their capabilities and capacity by opening the MRP plant in Monticello, Indiana. Today, the MRP plant operates in a modern 56,000 square foot facility with 50 employees.
Marian further strengthened its industrial and electrical capabilities in 1994 by acquiring the Kuehn Rubber Company in Milwaukee, WI (which relocated to a larger facility of 36,000 square feet in 2012).
In 1997, to strengthen our commitment to our customers in the southwestern United States and Mexico, Marian expanded to a 50,000 square foot facility in El Paso, Texas.
In 2001, Marian acquired the CutCraft facilities in both Fort Worth, Texas and Singapore as outstanding suppliers to the electronics, medical, and industrial markets.
In 2004, we opened our doors for business in Suzhou, China with our manufacturing center in the Suchun Industrial Square in order to serve many of our customers who have also opened manufacturing plants in China. We have since doubled our operating capacity in Suzhou to accommodate the needs of our customers.
We also acquired Marian Graphics in 2004 to broaden our product offerings to include custom screen-printed overlays.
Six years later, in 2010, we opened our doors for business in Shenzhen, China. The 2,700 square meter (30,000 square foot) manufacturing and engineering facility in Da Lang, Longhua, Shenzhen features core capabilities and serves all of our customers in Southern China and surrounding areas.
In late 2010, Marian Graphics and Marian Mexico merged under Marian Mexico, Inc.
In 2012, we opened a Sales and Engineering office in the Bay Area in California. Our strength in manufacturing small complex parts seen in most of today’s high tech products makes this area a good fit for Marian.
In 2014, Marian Europe opened its doors in Bassum, Germany. Marian Europe was opened in order to serve many of our manufacturing and design customers in this area of the world.
