JerrDan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation company, received the 2008 Franklin County (Pennsylvania) Area Development Corporation (FCADC) Large Business Award. JerrDan was awarded by the FCADC Industry Appreciation Committee.
The award criteria for large businesses are those that employ more than 100 full-time employees, have been in operation for at least five consecutive years and contribute to the overall economic and civic well being of Franklin County.
“At JerrDan, we pride ourselves on our dedicated, determined and talented employees. JerrDan is committed to investing in our people and business in support of sustained growth, world-class competitiveness, and ultimately our future,” said Mike Baer, vice president of Operations, who accepted the award on behalf of JerrDan management attending the event. “We believe in being innovative and creative while delivering high quality products and services.”
In 2008, JerrDan invested $4.5 million in improvements and expansion to their wrecker production facility located on Molly Pitcher Hwy in Greencastle. The development provides JerrDan with additional capacity to meet the growing demand and streamline the wrecker product manufacturing processes in line with the company’s “lean” manufacturing initiative.
