Voyager Industries in Brandon purchases facility in Staples

The property, formerly known as the McKechnie Tooling & Engineering building is located in the industrial park off Prairie Avenue Northwest, near the Staples airport.

Voyager Industries, Inc. recently signed a binding purchase agreement for a 34,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on 14 acres of land in Staples.

The property, formerly known as the McKechnie Tooling & Engineering building is located in the industrial park off Prairie Avenue Northwest, near the Staples airport.

Voyager Industries, headquartered in Brandon, also operates facilities in Evansville and Pine River. Company leaders said the expansion into Staples will provide much needed space and a skilled workforce to meet the continued growth of their proprietary product lines: Bear Track Trailers, Black Line, Titan Deck, Voyager Dock and Yetti Fish House.

“We are thankful for our hardworking and dedicated employees, customers and vendors who have helped put us in the position to be expanding. Our team is excited to join the Staples community as a premier employer, and we’re looking forward to getting to work right away” said Gary Suckow, president and CEO in a news release. “The facility layout fits in well with our manufacturing needs and during the purchasing process we were able to put together a good plan. With relatively few changes and modifications we plan to be up and running soon.”

To meet the needs of the expansion, Voyager plans to immediately hire for a number of positions including aluminum welders, fabricators, and assemblers. Interested candidates can find more information at www.voyager-industries.com/careers , or by emailing at hr@voyager-industries.com .
