Die-Tech Industries plans $6.75 million expansion in Carroll County
Die-Tech Industries of Carrollton announced that it will expand its presences in Carroll County, investing $6.75 million into an expansion project.
Die-Tech Industries supplies stamped parts to various industries, largely automotive, and is expanding to take on larger projects. Located next to the existing Carrollton plant, a new 90,000 square foot facility, loading docks, and employee parking lot will be constructed. A total of 15 new jobs will be added at the completion of the construction.
Third generation die makers and brothers Tom and Gerald Wysoczynski started Die-Tech Industries in Carrollton in 1987 after recognizing the need for quality automotive-style dies in the Southeast region. Starting from a small leased space, they quickly moved into a more permanent location which was expanded three times before building a new plant in 1997. A second plant followed in 2000 after operations were expanded to include automotive stampings.
“Die-Tech Industries is excited to have the opportunity to work on our manufacturing facility expansion with the community leaders at the City of Carrollton, Carroll County, Carroll Tomorrow, and the Carrollton Payroll Development Authority,” said Die-Tech’s President/CEO Tom Wysoczynski. “The support we have received from these professionals within our community will not only make our plant expansion a reality, but will also help to position our company for growth and success in the years to come.”
“The best economic development news for a community is when an existing industry is growing and expanding,” said Daniel Jackson, President/CEO of Carroll Tomorrow. Jackson noted that Die-Tech has enjoyed success and growth in a very competitive and time sensitive environment.
“Die-Tech is the kind of industry that a community appreciates so much,” Jackson said. “They take care of their business, support the local economy, and quietly take care of their customers and their employees in a professional manner.”
“We are very proud that Die-Tech continues to expand their operations in Carrollton and we wish them the best in their continued prosperity,” said Carrollton Mayor Walt Hollingsworth.
Since the beginning, Die-Tech Industries continually strives to exceed industry standards including a focus on using the latest hardware and software technology to solve industry problems. This focus started in 1991 with the formation of an internal network and the use of CAD for designing dies. In 1992, Die-Tech Industries became the first die shop in the South to send CAD data to purchase die shoes. Later, they implemented an industry leading MRP package, barcode and data collection system, and developed an in-house time and job tracking solution.
Today, Die-Tech Industries employs 175 people including 25 journeymen at two plants that consist of 128,000 square feet of manufacturing space with 60,000 square feet dedicated to stamping and the remaining to assembly and warehouse space. The parts they make can be found on the industry’s premier automobiles including BMW, Ford, Freightliner, Honda, Mercedes, Nissan and Toyota. Additionally, they supply parts to major manufacturers of office furniture, garage doors, lighting and appliances.
