Medlin commits to New Mexico and to supporting a new welding apprenticeship at NMSU
ALAMOGORDO N.M. - Medlin Ramps one of the world’s leading manufacturers of material handling equipment, has chosen Alamogordo, N.M. as the primary location for its third facility. The company has purchased a vacant Walmart store with a total of 87,150 square feet in building space and 25 acres of land at the intersection of Hwy 54 and Hwy 70.
In addition to the influx of money and additional local rural jobs, Medlin Ramps deepened its commitment to New Mexico by creating a welding apprenticeship program at New Mexico State University, at the suggestion of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. "I couldn't be more thrilled that we are moving the ball forward on both high-quality manufacturing jobs and workforce training," Gov. Lujan Grisham said. "This company is simultaneously helping us invest in employment opportunities tomorrow while delivering for New Mexicans who want to work today." Mark Medlin, CEO of Medlin Ramps, says they began producing ramps in Alamogordo on Feb. 4, 2020 and they currently have 12 full-time employees on site.
