RDP allocated $18MM in NMTCs to help Delco Trailers construct a new 550,000 sq. ft. trailer manufacturing facility. The new facility is expected to create 300 quality jobs, retain 115, and provide workforce development initiatives that will enhance opportunities for their employees. NMTCs will also equip the facility and provide the inventory needed to ramp-up production, boosting economic opportunities for the region and the nation through Delco’s expanded customer base.
Delco Trailers, Ltd
Delco Trailers is a family-run business that began as one man’s dream in 2006. Their growing number of product lines include bumper pulls, goosenecks and pintle hooks for livestock, flatbeds, equipment trailers, car haulers, pipe, premiums, dumps, cargo, and utility trailers. Over the past few years Delco has focused on building a stronger dealer network and employee base. The current 170,000 sq. ft. facility located in Sumner (TX) is no longer large enough to service the increasing demand for their products.
“Delco Trailers is a company that has created growth over the past several years by creating excellent products, focusing on the success of our dealer network, and providing quality jobs in the community,” said John Dyck, Delco Founder & CEO. “This partnership with RDP will help us to continue on that trajectory while having a positive and lasting impact on the community and our partners and customers across the country.”
Delco worked with Paris Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) whose mission is to plan, promote, finance, and construct opportunities for the retention, growth, and attraction of businesses that enhance the level of employment, economic-base and the quality of life in Paris and Lamar County (TX). Maureen Hammond, Executive Director of PEDC stated in a letter of support,
