Delco Trailers’ grand opening, and ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday was an afternoon of food, praise and celebrating, complete with a plaque from the governor, but without a lot of speechifying on the grounds of the 550,000-square-foot building on 68 acres of land just west of the Paris city limits.
A parade dignitaries offered kind words to the Dyck family for expanding the business that has been a growing staple in Lamar County since 2006 when John Dyck had a vision.
The speakers applauded the fruition of that vision.
“To see that vision come to reality has been so exciting. In one of our first meetings that we had, it was evident that you are entrepreneurial minded, and that you really are passionate about this community in creating jobs,” said Paris City Councilman Mihir Pankaj. “Ingenuity, grit and tenacity are all words that come to mind when I think about Delco.”
