Mayfield Consumer Products plans $8.3 million expansion to Graves County manufacturing facility

Branded candle and home fragrance manufacturer Mayfield Consumer Products LLC announced this week plans to add a facility and expand an existing building in Graves County with more than $8.3 million in investment that will create 52 full-time jobs.

“We are excited about the growth that MCP has been blessed with,” said Troy Propes, CEO of MCP. “It’s a reflection of the dedicated employees that continue to surpass our customer’s expectations. We would like to thank our community leadership for their passion and commitment to MCP and Gov. Bevin and his economic development team for sharing our vision. As Mayfield/Graves County natives, we are thrilled to remain not only in Kentucky but in Western Kentucky!”

MCP, retained by the Propes family after divesting their interests in MVP Group International, will use $5.55 million of its investment for the purchase and renovation of an existing 80,000-square-foot-plus facility on Rifle Trail in Mayfield that formerly housed Remington. The new facility will create 35 jobs and its operation will consist of increased capacity as well as creating multiple new manufacturing capabilities in an effort to expand into diversified markets and create more value-added services.

The company also will expand its existing operation in Mayfield with a more than $2.77 million investment that will create 17 additional employees. Both projects come in response to increased customer demand within MCP’s candle production business.

“Mayfield Consumer Products has been a great employer and strong corporate citizen for the past 20 years, and we are grateful for the company’s decision to continue expanding here in Kentucky,” Gov. Matt Bevin said. “These 52 new jobs will provide a significant boost to the local economy, and returning a dormant facility to operation is an added bonus of this exciting venture. Congratulations to MCP and the people of Graves County on this growing partnership.”

MCP was founded in Mayfield in 1998 and currently employs 245 people. The company contract manufactures for many of the world’s top brands that have a global reach.
