Jobs to Fill at ILC Dover

Posted:

SEAFORD, Del. – ILC Dover is in the process of staffing its recently acquired Grayling Industries.

So far the company has hired 50 employees and is looking to fill another 65 positions. Employees will manufacture safety products for containment control for asbestos abatement projects, and industrial packaging products for shipping and storing bulk liquids and dry products.

Frederica-based ILC Dover has developed the air bag system for the Mars Rover and safety equipment for homeland security and the U.S. military. Back in December, the company acquired Grayling Industries to boost its portfolio in flexible containment products for the pharmaceutical industry.

"ILC Dover and Grayling Industries look forward to the continuing growth of our business, which will result in more opportunities for our employees and the local economy," said William Wallach, ILC Dover CEO. "Grayling Industries appreciates all of the assistance that has been provided by state and local officials to get this new manufacturing facility started."

Production lines and necessary equipment are being transported from Grayling in Juarez, Mexico to Seaford.

"These new jobs, at this new plant, usher in a new day for the city of Seaford and all of Sussex County," said Gov. Jack Markell. "ILC Dover must be applauded for bringing these jobs here from Mexico and not only doing right by Delaware, but also helping our country continue to pull business back home."

ILC Dover received a state aid package that includes a $364,500 performance-based grant from the Delaware Strategic Fund. The Strategic Fund Capital Expenditures program also gave a $187,860 grant to the company.

"Positioning a high-quality operation like Grayling Industries at the southern end of our state provides more employment diversification to Sussex County," said Alan B. Levin, director of the Delaware Economic Development Office.
