Miller Metal Fabrication Plans Bridgeville, Delaware, Expansion


Miller Metal Fabrication, a privately owned regional metal fabrication company, will expand and consolidate its operations in Bridgeville, Delaware. The project should create 19 new jobs.

The company is investing nearly $7 million in its new facility, including acquisition, construction and fit-out costs. Located in Newton Business Park, just west of Route 13 on Route 404 in Western Sussex, Miller Metal plans to construct a 60,000 square foot industrial/office building on an 8.5 acres adjacent to its current leased facility.

“We strongly believe that this new ‘world-class’ production facility will be an integral part of our long-term growth strategy,” said Martin W. Miller, founder and owner of Miller Metal. “We are extremely grateful to have the support of the State of Delaware in this effort.”

The company’s projects are supported by grants approved for receipt from the Delaware Strategic Fund by the State Council for Development Finance: a $57,350 Employment Performance Grant and a capital expenditure grant of $207,900.

Miller Metal previously received a $313,000 Delaware Transportation Infrastructure Investment Fund grant to build a new Highway 404 entrance to Newton Business Park, which also facilitates future development for other businesses.

“Miller Metal Fabrication’s decision to expand operations and build a new plant in Bridgeville is great news for Sussex County and for Delaware,” Governor John Carney said. “This expansion will create new jobs and reaffirms that Delaware is the ideal place for business growth.”

By increasing its manufacturing capacity, Miller Metal said it would be able to capitalize on its commitment to using the latest advances in manufacturing technology, while continuing to meet the growing needs of its existing and potential customers across multiple industries.
