HIGH POINT, NC – JANUARY 22, 2018 – Mickey Truck Bodies has announced that it will hire up to 50 new employees during the first quarter of 2018 to meet production demands for its line of delivery bodies and trailers and specially-engineered vehicles. Many of these jobs will be in its recently opened liftgate installation facility in High Point, adjacent to the company’s main manufacturing and office complex on Trinity Ave.

The new facility was opened in October 2017 and houses a total of 15 bays for liftgate installations and chassis preparation. The van body business is one of Mickey’s fastest growing segments, and liftgates are one of the most popular accessories on these types of vehicles. Mickey expects to triple van body production within the next couple of years.

“Many of our customer industries are moving more toward using liftgates for driver safety and productivity,” says Dean Sink, Mickey President. “They are viable delivery accessories whether you are delivering dry goods, food, beverages – virtually any product or packaged good that comes off a truck.” In 2018 the company expects to install 5,000 liftgates at it new High Point facility. Mickey is an authorized installer for all major liftgate brands.

The majority of new hires will be experienced aluminum and steel welders, liftgate installers and line-assembly operators responsible for producing Van Body components and assembling the components into completed truck bodies and trailers.

“We offer a very competitive hourly wage and a superior benefits package that includes medical, 401k match, and incentives for safety, quality and attendance,” says Sink. “We have welders here who are earning as much as $50,000 to $60,000 annually. We have a very low turnover rate. Over 40% of our 400-plus full-time Mickey teammates have been with the company for at least 5 years, and 30% have been here for 10 years or more.”
