SB Mfg., LLC to hire 75 people by 2015

Pasco Co., FL-- The Pasco Economic Development Council, Inc. announced Monday that SB Mfg., LLC has chosen to locate in Dade City after considering several locations in Kentucky and Ohio and Florida.

SB Mfg., LLC  will operate out of the Dade City Business Center in Pasco, and will be hiring 75 people at average annual wages of $40,000 by 2015.

“We’re excited to see new manufacturing jobs coming to Dade City,” said Pasco County Commissioner Ted Schrader. ”This shows when we work together on a local, regional, and state level, we can bring these types of opportunities home to the United States and to Pasco County.”

SB Mfg, LLC will produce aluminum castings for the automotive parts industry, which are currently being produced in China, using high quality recycled aluminum from local sources.

The company says their announcement comes at a perfect time - when the topic of reshoring manufacturing jobs remains on the surface in the media, and economists are buzzing about September’s two percent rise in U.S. manufacturing activity on the Institute for Supply Management’s factory index. 

“SB’s choice of Florida reflects the continuing growth of manufacturing in our state,” said Gray Swoope, president and CEO of Enterprise Florida Inc., the state’s lead economic development organization. “This has been possible because of the effectiveness of corporate, government and community partnerships in building Florida’s economy. Our teamwork is enabling the state to attract and maintain manufacturing operations amid stiff competition on both a national and global scale.”

“Dade City is becoming a hub of activity for manufacturing,” said John Moors, president of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. “We’ve had several announcements this year, and I expect even more in 2013.”
