The Lincoln Airport Authority (LNK, lincolnairport.com) and Timpte, Inc., a Nebraska-based trailer manufacturing company headquartered in David City, have announced its new $22 million Lincoln Manufacturing Center development at LNK, with plans to break ground in the next 60 to 90 days.
The project is based on a long-term lease between Timpte, Inc. and LNK Airport not to exceed 50 years. The facility will be located on a parcel on the west side of the Lincoln Airport known as LNK Enterprise Park. The new Lincoln Manufacturing Center is estimated to be between 180,000 – 200,000-square-feet and will solely be built for the purpose of manufacturing equipment trailers, trailer components, trailer accessories, marine accessories, a wide range of metal fabrication, welding and paint processes and distribution of aftermarket trailer parts.
The manufacturing and distribution facility represents an estimated investment of $22 million by Timpte into the Lincoln Airport which is projected to create 80 quality jobs for Lincoln and take Timpte’s current overall employee base from 620 to 700 employees. The new facility built at LNK will support Timpte’s equipment trailer product line, parts distribution center, its’ sister entities Thunderstone Manufacturing and Lincoln Marine and support Timpte’s continued growth in the transportation industry.
The Lincoln Airport, owned and operated by the Lincoln Airport Authority, is a calm, hassle free travel spot for the people of Nebraska. For more information about flights and services, visit lincolnairport.com or call (402) 458-2480.
