Truck-Lite expansion to be completed in October
McELHATTAN — Truck-Lite, located in McElhattan, is about to receive six new job opportunities, 15,000 square feet of additional space and 12 new work centers in a building expansion, which is expected to be completed in October.
“It is a further investment in the company,” Andrew Liuzzo, Truck-Lite marketing communications specialist, said.
The addition will be to the right side of the existing building and the work centers will be in the heavy-injection molding department according to Liuzzo.
“It is part of our growth trajectory that the company is on,” he added. “That is the right facility for that work. This is a good thing for Truck-Lite.”
This facility just happens to be the primary distribution center and the addition will be a positive advantage for Wayne Township.
“It is going to be a good thing,” Wayne Township Supervisor Chairman James Maguire said.
For some background, Truck-Lite was established in 1955 by the development of sealed lighting according to their website and has grown from there, increasing their services across the United States and into Europe.
The company focuses on its “deep commitment to research and development” according to their website.
They continued by saying that all of their products go through testing to ensure the “top-of-the-line quality and performance” even in “extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals and real-world elements.”
With over 3,000 employees, over 135 engineers and over 250 patents, the goal of Truck-Lite is to “deliver the best” for commercial and military vehicles.
There was no further information available about when the expansion will be completed, and there will be no ribbon cutting ceremony due to COVID-19.
