Mickey Truck Bodies has launched expansion plans to virtually double the manufacturing capacity at its headquarters complex in High Point, North Carolina.
Mickey will break ground on a new manufacturing center within the next 12 months and until construction begins is using the new property to store chassis and finished products ready for delivery.
Over the past several months, Mickey has added 50 employees, bringing its total workforce to 400 employees. The company also owns and operates four regional reconditioning and service centers.
Upon completion, the new state-of-the-art manufacturing center will triple production capacity of Mickey’s existing van and vending body business to about 10,000 units per year.
The new 13-acre site is located across the street from Mickey’s Trinity Avenue headquarters in south High Point. In addition to the new property purchase, Mickey is currently under contract on a parcel that actually connects the existing Mickey property with the new one.
