A Chronicle of Growth and Industry Leadership

The Beginning with Bernie


MBI Products’ heritage of acoustics innovation began in 1965. At that time Metal Building Interior Products Company (now called MBI Products, Inc.) boasted 3 employees, one of which would go on to be the Governor of the State of Ohio. MBI Founder and President, Bernie Zarnick, committed himself to delivering highly effective products at a fair price with superior service.
