DICA welcomes visitors to new headquarters and manufacturing facility
By John Skelly09 September 2014
DICA® Outrigger Pads held a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house last month to celebrate its move a year ago to new a headquarters, manufacturing, and distribution facility in Guthrie Center, Iowa. The event was attended by more than 100 members of the community, local chamber of commerce, customers, friends, and family.
With the expansion to a larger facility, DICA has invested in manufacturing and fabrication equipment, enabling it to move into full-scale in-house manufacturing for its Safety Tech® Outrigger Pad and RV Jack Pad product lines. Since 2013, DICA has nearly doubled is staff, including the addition of a second shift to accommodate production and distribution demand of its products.
The company is positioned for continued growth with its 13,500 square foot facility designed to allow for additional manufacturing and distribution expansion. Currently the company’s Safety Tech Outrigger Pads and FiberMax Crane Mats are used in more than 20 countries and on six continents.
“Our new facility and location provides us with the capabilities that DICA needs to reach the world with our products and expertise,” said Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA. “We have more room for inventory, manufacturing, administration, and development of new products, like our new Outrigger Pad Rack, to better serve our customers’ needs.”
The company’s Midwest headquarters provides access to great freight lanes that enables fast and cost-effective delivery to domestic and international customers. In addition, DICA’s sales office is located in Littleton, Colo., and its marketing office is in San Diego, Calif.
