P. Graham Dunn began a new chapter in its history this year with a formal groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the 84,000 square feet expansion of the manufacturing facility. Construction is well underway and the once was the Buckeye Event Center is now connected with our original building.
Founded in March of 1976, P. Graham Dunn has long been a leading manufacturer of Inspirational Art, Gift and Home Décor, currently distributing to over 5,000 accounts nationwide. The company services accounts that vary from Hobby Lobby and Cracker Barrel to local independent shops, such as Hallmark stores and Christian Bookstores. Over the last ten years, the company has experienced significant growth which led to the purchase and expansion into the Buckeye Event Center, located next to the facility. Utilizing the existing 120,000 square feet of manufacturing space and the 62,000 square feet obtained through the newly acquired adjacent building, plans to expand are not only warranted but required. P. Graham Dunn’s new building expansion will include an 80-foot-wide mezzanine, with a third story above the existing roofline. With this addition, the total facility footprint will increase to 266,000 square feet across nearly five acres of land. The family-owned company, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary, plans to also increase retail and manufacturing space expanding on capacity and capabilities to accommodate its ongoing growth. Construction is expected to continue throughout the next year, with a completed shell of the building set for March of 2017.
