A ground breaking ceremony in Heritage Business Park for Load Trail has been announced by the Economic Development Corporation. The April 3, 2018 ground breaking will take place at 10:30 am. Heritage Business Park is located off Loop 301 near Raven Industries and Armorock Polymer Concrete.
Load Trail, a manufacturer of trailers and dump trailers, will be housed in a 150,000 square feet building at Heritage Business Park. New jobs at the facility will total 150.
During the February Sulphur Springs City Council meeting it was noted that three local banks, Alliance, City National, and Guaranty Bank and Trust will provide a loan for $7.8-million for the building. The city will not be responsible for the debt which will be paid from the lease of the facility to Load Trail.
Load Trail will be the second industry to locate in Heritage Business Park. Armorock Polymer Concrete chose Sulphur Springs for their first expansion of the Nevada based Company. Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation and Armorock Polymer Concrete conducted a ground breaking ceremony at the site in February 2017.
