Dejana Truck and Utility Equipment Co. of New England
Dejana Truck and Utility Equipment Co. of New England (Dejana) required a new building consisting of office space, equipment showroom, industrial fabrication, and product storage space. Founded in 1947, Dejana is a truck body and equipment company with divisions across the Northeastern United States. RGB was contracted through Dejana to work with Ricci & Sons Construction in providing design/build services for the new facility. The project consolidated operations from two locations and totals 45,000 square feet. The facility features 26 manufacturing bays, 3 state-of-the-art paint spray booths and is on 19 acres.
The layout of the facility has also been streamlined to improve production flow and maximize efficiency. Truck bodies like dumps, landscapers and utilities, essentially come in one end and drive out the other as completed commercial vehicles. There are also entire sections dedicated to the installation and repair of snow plow equipment, commercial van interiors, and large fleet and municipal projects.
