Mickey expansion is talk of the town

Home » The Mickey Spirit » Mickey expansion is talk of the town

The local business press in the Triad region of NC has been abuzz recently with news of Mickey Truck Bodies’ expansion plans to virtually double the manufacturing capacity at its headquarters complex in High Point.

Both the HIGH POINT ENTERPRISE and TRIAD BUSINESS JOURNAL reported accurately that Mickey “will break ground on a new manufacturing center within the next 12 months on the former site of Pearson Furniture.” Mickey acquired the site last year and until construction begins is using it to store chassis’ and finished products ready for delivery.

It was particularly good news for the area since Mickey is the 25th largest employer in High Point and the city’s 6th largest manufacturing employer, according to the most recent figures. With the expansion Mickey is poised to move up on the list, given its recent and future growth. Over the past several months, Mickey has added 50 employees, bringing its total workforce to 400 employees. The majority of the employees work in North Carolina. The company also owns and operates four regional reconditioning and service centers that employ the balance of workers.

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 former Pearson furniture plant, which closed in 2014, is located on a 13-acre site across the street from Mickey’s Trinity Avenue headquarters in south High Point. In addition to the Pearson property purchase, Mickey is currently under contract on a parcel that actually connects the existing Mickey property with the former Pearson property.
