Work is continuing at a steady pace at the site of Great Dane's new refrigerated trailer manufacturing plant in the Gateway Industrial Park complex on Highway 301 South. Construction at the 118-acre site is on track, and the company's manufacturing engineering manager Alan Whiten expects the plant's certificate of occupancy to be issued in December. "If construction remains on schedule, we can begin to move equipment into the plant at the beginning of January," Whiten said.
