There has been talk inside of the company that Matt Mann owns some say the company is going down hill fast some say he lost the contract with Lowes. I know they got kicked off a job site a couple weeks ago and production has slowed from around 3000 sq. ft. a day down to between 1600 to 1800 sq. ft. a day. A talk of down sizement has been heard alot of the employees have also went over to COMMON WEALTH BOLT in Rich Creek and turned in applications there.So Someone spread som light on this subject.

Commonwealth Bolt is not closed. They have just changed hands and getting ready to boom.

Do you believe everything you hear. Maybe you better go check the place out for yourself. If it was in that bad of shape, I'm sure the health department would have already closed it down.

ok i wasnt goin to say anything about it but since u wanna be smart about it i have seen pictures from a guy that works there and it dont look good the only reason why the HD hasnt been in there is because noone has called about it yet so before you really go pointing fingers i would go check it all out for yourself and you would see the problems and taste the dust and smell the swere and stagnation

Why areyou so angry about this? Stop complaining if you don't even work there. If the employees feel unsafe then they should contact the health dept.

I have known Matt Mann for a long time and am a frequent visitor to M-Rock. I have toured the facility because of my acquaintance with him and several other employees. I know for a fact the Lowe's deal is still there. Go into any store from WV to FL and you will see their display. Sounds like either a former employee or one who is just unhappy with their current job.

maybe that is why commonwealth sold out the other company just now bought it so they will fix it up. Also alot of people are applying because they are going to pay more. The employees there now that are complaining are only complaining because the new company promised a large order that they will have to work this weekend to fill. the way I look at it if you are afraid to work the hours you are getting paid for quit and let someone who will work have the job. the way gas is we all need some overtime and close to home.

Hello everyone! This is Kimberly Cook, the Office Manager at M-Rock. It's nice to hear we are a topic of conversation! However, let me set a few things straight to satisfy the rumors being circulated. First, M-Rock has not been sold to anyone we have been and are still owned by Matt and Kim Mann. Second, we have not lost our contract with Lowe's. I should know since I personally process the orders EVERY day. We are NOT closing our doors and we are not laying anyone off.

As far as the complaints about the health hazards go, it just simply isn't true. I am here at the facility every day, a lot of times on weekends and after hours. I am a wife and mom. Those of you who know me, also know my experience in the workforce. Do you honestly think I would be working here if I thought it was so bad or I would continue to stay if M-Rock were closing? I am completely devoted to our company and am very proud of what we have accomplished. It has been a lot of hard work and I have absolutely no intention of leaving. If you have any questions call the office, I will be glad to answer your questions.

Sincerely,
Kimberly Cook

Folks in our community cant seem to stand the sight of success. Thank you to M-rock for creating jobs in our community, the same goes for Commonwealth Bolt in Va. We need all the jobs we can get in this area.
There is talk on other forums pertaining to Sheriff levies and rebuilding schools.
Where do this money come from people?
Another forum posts the southern end of the county as the hind-end, we need unity in Monroe county, not ignorant comments posted by someone who has nothing positive to offer.
