For the past 89 years, Ozinga has called the Midwest home. Soon, we'll expand our ready mix business to Miami. Our new South Florida facility will create dozens of new jobs and economic opportunity for the surrounding region and will supply concrete to build the foundation for local residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure projects.
To launch our newfound presence in the South Florida area, a fleet of Ozinga mixers will drive from Lakeland, FL to the new Miami facility on February 3, 2017. The plant will then start production at the beginning of March.
The opening of the new South Florida facility demonstrates confidence in the recovering economy, steady growth in the construction industry and a strong testament to a skilled workforce, said company President Marty Ozinga.
“We are committed to South Florida and look forward to creating new jobs and generating tax revenue that will provide a boost to the overall economy in the state for many years to come,” Ozinga said. “This investment will not only strengthen the local construction sector and create good-paying manufacturing jobs for residents, but it will also have a multiplier effect on the regional economy.”
Ozinga is seeking to hire drivers, sales staff, operations managers, quality control technicians, dispatchers, mechanics and maintenance personnel. We value our team members and offer a fulfilling work experience, competitive salaries, healthcare benefits and retirement plans that are second to none.
“The arrival of Ozinga in the City of Miami highlights the growth we’re experiencing in the area,” said City of Miami Commissioner Wifredo “Willy” Gort. “The investment in the facility and the jobs it will create will serve as a catalyst for economic growth as well as a positive sign for South Florida’s economy.”
The new state-of-the-art facility was designed with high-efficiency batching plants. In addition, Ozinga’s ready mix trucks are equipped with the latest safety features and technology, including Digital Fleet tracking, 10.5-yard paver drums, aluminum chutes and body cabs, Verifi slump monitoring and management equipment, backup cameras, and Smart Witness forward-facing camera systems.
“We pride ourselves on not only our service and quality of product, but also becoming ingrained in the communities we serve,” Ozinga added. “We are excited about building strong and lasting relationships in South Florida that will enhance quality of life throughout the region.”
