20 of 83
Mathews Inc. and 30 of 39 employees move to a new location in Sparta, Wisconsin, a true testament to their faith in McPherson’s vision for the company. Their new facility was an enormous 12,400 square feet. Joel Maxfield, Vice President of Marketing, recalls thinking, “If we ever produce enough bows to utilize ‘all this space,’ we will truly be an amazing company.”
Fast forward another 15 years to today, and we see that Mathews has grown well beyond Joel’s expectations. Since that time in 1995, the company has expanded its space 6 times to approximately 140,000 square feet, typically employing over 300 people. By putting people first and business second, Matt McPherson has successfully built a major force in the archery industry.
