Maintainer Corp. Unveils Plans For Two Expansions; Hiring 60 Employees

Sheldon, Iowa — A Sheldon manufacturing company and major employer has announced it will be bringing at least 60 new jobs to the community and will be making two expansions.

Maintainer Corporation, headquartered in Sheldon, has unveiled plans to address what they are calling the “unprecedented demand for their products.” The company announced two pivotal expansions: the establishment of an 11,000-square-foot vocational training center and showroom at its north plant campus, alongside a substantial 30,800-square-foot extension at the south plant location. Both projects are scheduled to commence this spring.

They tell us their vocational training center will serve as a hub for employee development, onboarding, and comprehensive skills training across all production areas.

Maintainer President Shelley Morris says, “The training center will play a pivotal role in equipping new employees with the necessary skills to advance their careers at Maintainer.” They tell us that additionally, the center will accommodate a company showroom, a merchandise area, and a multi-purpose space. Adjacent to the training center will be a dedicated manufacturing technology area, which they say “reflect(s) Maintainer’s commitment to leveraging advanced manufacturing methods.”

We are told that the expansion at the south plant will effectively double the existing manufacturing capacity and they say it exemplifies a significant milestone for the company. Maintainer officials say, “With more manufacturing capacity, the company is poised to better serve customers.”

Addressing the surge in demand, Morris says, “These expansions are vital to meeting the needs of our loyal, dedicated, and growing customer base.”

Coinciding with the company’s expansion, Maintainer company officials tell us they intend to hire approximately 60 new employees to fill a variety of production and support roles.

Morris says, “Maintainer is an industry leader because of our team. The commitment to quality, customer service and innovation is why we continue to grow in Northwest Iowa.” The company says that with a commitment to providing opportunities for professional development and career growth, Maintainer is excited to welcome talented individuals who are eager to be part of a dynamic and thriving organization.

Maintainer, recognized for its premium line of work trucks supporting construction, ag, railroad, municipal, mining, and heavy equipment sectors since 1976, currently operates three facilities in Northwest Iowa. With construction set to begin immediately, both projects are slated to be completed later this year.
