Trim-Lok, a manufacturer of thermoplastic, seal parts, and more, will be occupying a facility in Elkhart to improve service and production. In addition to its expansion, the company is offering more jobs.

The 150,000-square-foot facility will be for manufacturing and warehousing space. An additional 5,500 square feet will be allotted for an office space with the latest technologies to support all facets of the 50-year-old business.

The company’s expansion will create additional jobs in manufacturing, warehouse, and office to support the significant investment into equipment to increase manufacturing capacity and implement new capabilities. The new facility will provide Trim-Lok with shorter transit paths for raw material and finished goods and allow better freight management for both Trim-Lok and its customers. As a result, shipment times to its customers will be drastically decreased. It will now better manage inventory in a more central location for customers east of the Rocky Mountains.

“Having manufacturing capabilities in the Midwest is a critical component of our ability to support our customers, especially with the market the way it is currently. We have had a fairly small, yet resilient, workforce and set of capabilities in our current 27,000 square feet facility. With the expansion, we will be growing not only our physical footprint but our workforce and capability set,” said Trim-Lok Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Dan Whitener in a release.
