Muncie, IN—Earlier today, members of Delaware Dynamics, the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance, government officials and other community leaders gathered to break ground for a new facility at Delaware Dynamics, in downtown Muncie.
In opening remarks, Jeff Parsons said, “Each day the Chamber, the Economic Development Alliance and its partners work together with elected officials and stakeholders to advance economic development in our community, and today is no exception.”
Delaware Dynamics new facility will be dedicated to escalating their high-tech capabilities. The building will house more high-speed mills including another state-of-the-art 5-axis machine, as well as expanding their 3-D printing capabilities to greater sizes and a larger variety of materials.
The new expansion will be the tenth building located on Delaware Dynamics’ campus, just south of downtown in Muncie, Indiana. The 29,000 square foot addition will allow Delaware Dynamics to better service their existing customers and possibly explore other business opportunities that would benefit from their strong engineering and machining expertise and capabilities.
This growth which includes the addition of several new jobs, comes at a great time for Delaware Dynamics. It coincides with the launch of a formal structured Apprenticeship Program which includes a pre-apprentice initiative to help provide candidates information and skills needed to enter the program. The Apprenticeship Program will leverage the knowledge, skills and experience of its team of expert CNC Machinists, Engineers, Tool Builders/Assemblers and supporting staff to ensure their success.
