Join MINNCOR Industries as we tour and take an inside look into operations at the Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF) Faribault (FRB). MCF-Faribault consists of a medium-security facility and a minimum-security unit located outside the secure perimeter. With a combined population of over 2,000 adult males, MCF-Faribault is the largest facility in the DOC system. The facility was originally a state hospital that was shut down in the 1980’s. In 1989, the Legislature authorized its conversion to correctional use in Faribault.

MINNCOR’s operation at the MCF-FRB is roughly 114,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space and services include Wood Furniture Manufacturing, Design and Layout Services, Industrial Laundry, Cleaning and Custodial Products, Bottling Services, as well as Subcontract Manufacturing and Labor.
