While many manufacturing jobs have left the Stateline, there are some local companies that are actually looking to hire skilled manufacturing workers. Header Die and Tool is one of them. The President, Lucas Derry, says the company currently has about 40 employees and hopes to increase that number by about 10 percent in the near future. Derry adds the key to being successful in tough times is flexibility and adds, “There is no more doing business as usual….time restraints are tighter….it is all about knowing the needs of your customers and meeting them.” Header Die and Tool makes many different kinds of manufacturing parts for local and national companies.
