U-Haul Part Production Returns to Union City Plant
For the past 30 years, MFG’s plant in Southern California has been producing composite parts for U-Haul’s Ford rolling chassis.
This summer that job transferred back to MFG Union City, where it launched back in 1985.
The shift back to Union City will result in freight savings for the customer, as six of eight delivery sites are East of the Mississippi including a new location in Avon Lake, Ohio.
For MFG, adding product diversity will support future growth for MFG Union City.
Senior VP Dennis Vorse, forecasts that approximately 30 new teammates will be brought on board in Union City, and production will ramp up to 3,000 to 6,000 sets of parts yearly.
The Union City plant is also preparing to manufacture parts for last-mile delivery vehicles used by FedEx, UPS and DHL.
MFG Union City has been in operation for close to 70 years, producing composite parts for transportation, rail, corrosion, and agricultural markets.
