Miller Metal Fabrication, a privately held regional metal fabrication company, will expand and consolidate its operations in Bridgeville, Delaware. The project is expected to create 19 new jobs.
The company is investing nearly $ 7 million in its new facility, including acquisition, construction and development costs. Located in Newton Business Park, just west of Route 13 on Route 404 in Western Sussex County, Miller Metal plans to construct a 60,000 square foot industrial / office building on land of 8.5 acres adjacent to its currently leased facility.
“We are confident that this new ‘world class’ production facility will be an integral part of our long term growth strategy,” said Martin W. Miller, founder and owner of Miller Metal. “We are extremely grateful for the support of the State of Delaware in this effort.”
The company’s plans are supported by grants it was approved to receive from the Delaware Strategic Fund by the State Council on Development Finance: an employment performance grant of $ 57,350 and a grant for capital expenditures of $ 207,900.
Miller Metal has already received a grant from the Delaware Transportation Infrastructure Investment Fund of $ 313,000 for the construction of a new entrance to Route 404 at Newton Business Park, which also facilitates the future development of other companies.
“Miller Metal Fabrication’s decision to expand its operations and build a new plant in Bridgeville is great news for Sussex County and for Delaware,” said Governor John Carney. “This expansion will create new jobs and reaffirms that Delaware is the ideal location for business growth. “
By increasing its manufacturing capacity, Miller Metal said it will be able to capitalize on its commitment to utilize the latest technological advances in manufacturing, while continuing to meet the growing needs of its existing and potential customers across multiple industries. .
