100 employees expected to be hired by February; trucker training school planned

 

BULLHEAD CITY – Rocky Vecera, Jr. has transferred from a company facility in Maryland to oversee initial operation of the distribution center that Georgia-based Primus Builders is constructing for Dot Foods near the Bullhead City Airport.

 

“It’s an opportunity of a lifetime,” Vecera said. “I am blessed to help lead this effort and lead a great team of folks that we have working on this project. I couldn’t be happier and things are going great.”

Vecera said construction of the 190,000-square-foot facility on a 45-acre parcel at 2565 Landon Drive is about 75 percent complete with operations targeted for early next February.

Vecera said six key Dot Foods employees are working from temporary quarters on the Mohave Community College (MCC) campus. Dozens more will join them in coming months.

Vecera said the workforce should swell to about 100 employees by February and to 125 by early 2019.

“We’re going to have three stages of volume come on. The first couple of months we’ll start off pretty light,” Vecera said. ‘Folks will be trained and then we’ll have a few months of increased volume. When we say ‘volume,’ it just means pounds of groceries.”

MCC will open a school to train Dot Foods truck drivers by January if not sooner. And anyone interested in working for Dot Foods can visit the company website.

“All of our applications are taken online, on our website (www.dotfoods.com),” Vecera said. “If they go to the ‘career’ section, they’ll be able to see all of the current postings for our Bullhead City positions.”

Vecera expressed thanks to Bullhead City Mayor Tom Brady, City Manager Toby Cotter, MCC and others for helping Dot Foods launch its Arizona facility, the company’s 11th distribution center in the nation.
