Great Dane Trailers Plans To Hire 200 People

Last updated on Monday, January 9, 2012

(BRAZIL) - The unemployment rate in the Valley could get even smaller in the coming months.

Great Dane Trailers in Brazil, Indiana is planning to add around 200 new jobs beginning in March.

Last year, the company added 300 jobs, making it Clay County's largest employer.

Most of the positions will be in the manufacturing department.

Officials say they need to fill so many positions because past customers are coming back for more.

"A lot of our loyal customers have just decided that they've waited as long as they can before making purchase. So what we're seeing is a lot of long term customers returning to buying trailers," said Great Dane Plant Manager Gary Parker.

You can pick up an application at the guard gate at Great Dane Headquarters: 2664 E. US Highway 40 in Brazil.
