A Nebraska based trailer manufacturing company plans to build a $22 million facility at the Lincoln Airport. Timpte Inc. is based in David City and company officials expect to break ground in the next 60-90 days on the west side of Lincoln Airport known as LNK Enterprise Park.
The new Lincoln Manufacturing and Distribution facility will solely be built for the manufacturing of equipment trailers, trailer components and accessories as well marine accessories, metal fabrication, welding and paint processes and the distribution of aftermarket trailer parts.

“Timpte is excited for the opportunity to expand our manufacturing operations in Lincoln and build on the success we have seen over the past 11 years at our West O Street facility” says Dale Jones, President and CEO of Timpte, Inc.
In addition to the $22 million, Timpte will be investing $9-$10 million in machine tool equipment. “This new facility will allow us to bring further diversification to our product portfolio and create a variety of well paid, skilled job opportunities,” Jones says.
The addition of the manufacturing and distribution plant is projected to create 80 quality jobs for Lincoln and take Timpte’s current overall employee base from 620 to 700 employees.
