Mickey Truck Bodies has acquired a new manufacturing location consisting of two facilities totaling 158,000 square feet in Salem Township, PA. Once converted, Mickey will use manufacturing operation to serve the Northeast market.
“The Northeast U.S. represents a tremendous growth opportunity for Mickey Truck Bodies, and having modern manufacturing capabilities in the state of Pennsylvania will enable us to service this growth efficiently,” says Dean Sink, Mickey President. “Everyone at the state and local levels involved with this expansion has been very helpful and welcoming. We’re looking forward to becoming a positive part of the community.”
Mickey is planning to invest about $7 million to establish the new manufacturing facility.
“When companies choose Pennsylvania as the best place to expand, it shows the strength of our manufacturing climate,” says Governor Tom Wolf. “This administration holds manufacturing as a top priority, so to see a company like Mickey Truck Bodies come here to set up shop and create 50 new jobs, we know that our manufacturing initiatives are working as they should.”
“The Berwick Industrial Development Association (BIDA) is pleased to welcome Mickey Truck Bodies as the newest member of the Greater Berwick Area’s industrial community,” says Stephen Phillips, Executive Director of BIDA. “This long established, family-owned business will be a welcome addition to this locale’s other job generators.”
