The Wolverine

Scranton, IA (October 21, 2019) – New Way Trucks, Inc., an Iowa-based refuse truck manufacturer, is proud to announce that they will be expanding operations to a 152,000 square foot facility located at 1 Wolverine Drive in Booneville, Mississippi. Initially titled ‘Project Wolverine’, New Way Trucks has worked closely with the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) to secure this strategic site. The project will initially create 100 jobs.

“We are thrilled to be working with the team from Booneville, Prentiss County, and the state of Mississippi who have already made us feel at home,” said New Way CEO Mike McLaughlin.

New Way plans to start operations within the next three months. Once operational, the company will begin manufacturing its Cobra™ and Viper™ rear loaders with other products to follow. New fabrication equipment is being scheduled for delivery and installation at the new site.

“Our products are in high demand, and a new Mississippi facility provides a strategic advantage that will benefit our customers and extensive dealer network,” said New Way Trucks Executive Vice President Johnathon McLaughlin. “A fourth manufacturing facility will allow New Way to establish a new industry standard in efficient, time-critical solid waste equipment deliveries meeting the demand of our dealers and end-users.”

The site was selected for its ability to meet several needs of the company. The Booneville facility is essentially move-in-ready and met capability requirements with overhead cranes, lighting, and sufficient power. Boasting 40 acres of land, there is room for on-site expansion if needed. Workforce availability was another determining factor in the final decision. New Way will begin the hiring process soon, with job listings being posted on the company’s website. The refuse truck manufacturer has also partnered up with the local job networks and Northeast Mississippi Community College to recruit top talent in the area.

MDA and the State of Mississippi have been supportive throughout the entire process by assisting New Way Trucks in achieving its expansion goals.

"The addition of New Way Trucks to the Booneville business community shows industry leaders around the country that Mississippi is the place where manufacturing companies seeking a top-notch, skilled workforce and supportive business environment can expect to enjoy years of growth and success," Gov. Phil Bryant said. "Leaders at the state and local levels are dedicated to strengthening communities through economic growth, as evidenced by New Way's commitment to create 100 jobs in Prentiss County.”

More information about the expansion’s progress will be released at a future date.
