Monogram Martinsville will commit to over $30 million capital investment in building, equipment, acquisition of the distribution center and inventory for the project.

The Phase II expansion had approximately a $3.5 million financing gap for completion of the distribution center facility and final purchase and installation of equipment. Monogram Martinsville committed to creating over 50 new permanent jobs for the low-income community.  Monogram specializes in strategic co-packing, private label and branded business, with both owned brands and licensed brands.
