Sept. 8, 2014 (Guthrie Center, Iowa) DICA® Outrigger Pads recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house last month to celebrate its move a year ago to new a headquarters, manufacturing, and distribution facility in Guthrie Center, Iowa. The event was attended by more than 100 members of the community, local chamber of commerce, customers, friends, and family.
With the expansion to a larger facility, DICA has invested in manufacturing and fabrication equipment, enabling it to move into full-scale in-house manufacturing for its Safety Tech® Outrigger Pad and RV Jack Pad product lines. Since 2013, DICA has nearly doubled its staff, including the addition of a second shift to accommodate production and distribution demand of its products.
The company is well positioned for continued growth with its 13,500 sq. ft.facility designed to allow for additional manufacturing and distribution expansion. Currently the company’s SafetyTech Outrigger Pads and FiberMax Crane Mats are used in more than 20 countries and on six continents.
“Our new facility and location provides us with the capabilities that DICA needs to reach the world with our products and expertise,” said Kris Koberg, CEO of DICA. “We have more room for inventory, manufacturing, administration, and development of new products, like the ZeroLift Outrigger Pad Rack, to better serve our customer’s needs.”
The company’s Midwest headquarters provides access to great freight lanes that enables fast and cost-effective delivery to domestic and international customers. In addition, DICA’s sales office is located in Littleton, Colo., and its marketing office is in San Diego, Calif.
DICA, Guthrie Center, Iowa, has been specializing in building a better outrigger pad since 1988. By creating engineered solutions for improving equipment stability and ergonomic safety, DICA is leading the way in product innovation for outrigger pads and crane mats.
DICA outrigger pads and crane mats are used in 20+ countries and on 6 continents around the world in construction, maintenance, electrical utility, oil and gas and tree care as well as local, state and federal government agencies. Learn more at www.dicausa.com.
