Konrad Prefab To Begin Manufacturing Operations in Springfield

Filed under: SRDC — admin @ 10:11 am

Springfield Regional Development Corporation (SRDC) is pleased to announce that Konrad Prefab will be starting manufacturing operations in the Robert S. Jones Industrial Center in Springfield in the next few weeks. Konrad Prefab is a locally-based company specializing in the design and production of display and modular units.

The purpose built units or environments, as they are referred to, will be used by customers for retail stores, trade show marketing, point of purchase displays and signage. Konrad Prefab will utilize new machinery to produce these environments, which require large format printing, fabrication of ACM and panel processing.

Financing for Konrad Prefab is being provided by Mascoma Bank and the Vermont Economic Development Authority (VEDA) with assistance from the Small Business Administration (SBA).  Bob Flint, SRDC Executive Director, said that he appreciated the hard work that went into this project.  He said, “We really want to thank Mascoma, VEDA and SBA, as well as the Town of Springfield, for their support of pulling the pieces together for Konrad Prefab.”

Company President David Jaacks estimates that Konrad Prefab will employ 10-12 people in the next 12 months with hopes for additional growth in the coming years.
