Dex Heavy Duty Parts Opens Advance, North Carolina, Manufacturing Plant

Dex Heavy Duty Parts, one of the leading suppliers of recycled, renovated and surplus heavy duty truck parts, opened its new manufacturing facility in Advance, North Carolina.

A member of the Volvo Group that recently moved its operation from Floyd, Virginia, to Advance, North Carolina, Dex chose the new Davie County location because it provides better road infrastructure and access to an educated workforce, the Governor’s office said. It also gave Dex the ability to recycle an existing textile manufacturing plant to a new life.

“Dex chose North Carolina, in part, because of our skilled workforce and the quality of our community colleges," said Governor Pat McCrory said. “Along with bringing jobs, Dex’s move speaks to our state’s appeal as a place where businesses can grow and prosper.”

The company created 38 new jobs in Advance, with plans to grow substantially at its new location, state economic development officials said. Dex will be working with the local community college to develop training modules for the operation.
