MASON CITY – Dimensional Graphics Corporation, of Mason City, was recently awarded $115,000 in NIACOG RLF funding.
Established in 1987, the Dimensional Graphics Corporation, located at 325 North Jackson Avenue, began as an industrial screenprinter of OEM decals, LED faceplates, and pressure-sensitive, die-cut products. Over the years, the company has made several strategic acquisitions to enhance their company and provide more products for their customers.
As a result of the NIACOG RLF funding, Dimensional Graphics Corporation will acquire the assets of Academy Looseleaf & Bindery of Nashville, Tennessee. With the addition of the newly acquired machinery, Dimensional Graphics will be able to add another product to their line, turned edge manufacturing, and also add 20-25 jobs.
“Over the past three years, manufacturing jobs have left our community. We are very excited to bring twenty or more jobs back,” said Adam Gold, president of Dimensional Graphics.
This was the first award made from NIACOG’s loan pool of $460,000, established by a $400,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce Development Administration and a $60,000 local match from the Iowa Economic Development Authority. The NIACOG RLF was established to provide a public financing tool to enhance business assistance programs and services to businesses and communities in the NIACOG region.
