Manufacturing Jobs Coming To Sussex County

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICA, Del. - A Delaware based company that's been on the cutting edge of technology - for over half a century, is bringing more jobs to the First State.

"Our claim to fame over the years has been the space suit for NASA," said CEO, Bill Wallach.

"We actually make blimps either for government or commercial reasons. Most of the blimps you see flying over football stadiums are produced here," said Design Engineer, Adam Sadkowski.

ILC Dover purchased Grayling Industries' manufacturing operations, to move their plant in Mexico to the Old Dupont Warehouse in Seaford.

"The total cost to doing business would be equal or less to move those operations here, than to have a remote facility down in Juarez," said Wallach.

With six production lines, officials say the new facility will open up 115 positions, some as soon as April.

"The people that run the manufacturing equipment that make the product, and at the same time, there will be a series of management positions. People will be responsible for purchasing material or doing the maintenance," said Wallach.

If you're bilingual it's a plus. Officials say the documentation and training will be in both English and Spanish.

"Really excited on that, just to have that opening for people who won't speak the best English but still have an opportunity to have a job," said Sadkowski.

About 35 to 40 jobs will be available late April and the others soon after. ILC Dover says they have already received so many applications, so act fast.
