What Our Members Are Saying

Membership to the electronic plan room saves us much time and expense as opposed to traveling to a stationary plan room or ordering paper plans.

— Mike Noonan, Cascade Manufacturing Co

MBEX is one of the most used project lead sites by Pella locally. It is easy to navigate and access plans/specs. Thank you! Without MBEX we would not have as many opportunities.

— Toni Carlson, Pella Windows & Doors Inc- Twin Cities

I’m thinking back to the olden days when everything was on paper. In some ways I long for those “good old days.” Looking back, I stopped visiting the MBEX physical plan room when our manufacturers forced us into Reed’s online service, where support was frequently needed and seldom easy to get. My company decided to switch over to the MBEX online plan service…we are very pleased with the results. It is intuitive and easy to use. The projects are simple to find and the search tools are superior to those supplied by the big boys. All in all, you’ve done a great job.

— Thomas C Enlow, Enlow Companies

I have used the MBEX online service for quite some time and find it to be an invaluable asset.  Plans and specifications are promptly downloaded and easily accessible.

— George Podrug, Superior Crane Corp
