VSM Abrasives Expands Manufacturing Plant

Today VSM Abrasives held a groundbreaking ceremony for a 50,000 square foot expansion of their manufacturing plant located at 1012 East Wabash Street in O’Fallon, MO.

VSM Abrasives has partnered with St. Louis-based companies M+H Architects and Musick Construction Co. for this expansion which will allow more space for shipping, materials and finished goods-increasing their overall production capabilities. This is the second expansion VSM Abrasives has made within 3 years, including a previous extension of office space in 2019.

The groundbreaking ceremony was led by Brent Barton, President of VSM Abrasives. He was joined by VSM's Plant Manager, Greg Fields, and O'Fallon Mayor Bill Hennessy. Also in attendance were several members of the City of O'Fallon Chamber of Commerce and local media.

"Despite the difficulties of Covid-19, VSM has had significant growth over the past few years. This expansion will allow us to accommodate our growth and better serve our future needs," said Brent Barton. "This will positively impact our customers, employees and the surrounding St. Charles County community. We would like to thank our valued customers and dedicated employees; without them, this project would not be possible."

The project is projected to be complete by the end of 2022.
