GMJG, LLC has waited a long time for this day. The groundbreaking took place on Monday, April 2 on a sunny afternoon. In attendance were Morenci Mayor Jeff Bell, GMJG Partner Lucinda Swinney, her son Zac Swinney, City Councilwoman Susan Pierce, Tim Nichols of Tim Nichols Architect, City Councilman Jeff Lampson and City Manager Mike Sessions.

The groundbreaking started the first factory in a development that will populate the entire industrial park of 65 acres. The GMJG building will be just over 20,000 square feet and housing facilities for the production of medical marijuana.

Many local residents welcomed the event as a sign of major investment in their rural town on the Ohio border. They are looking forward to the expanding services and infrastructure that are already in evidence in the new water main under construction just 100 yards away.

Tim Nichols Architect played the pivotal role of preparing the site plan and construction documents for the project.
