WILMINGTON — Dan Evers, Executive Director of the Clinton County Port Authority, spoke to the 3M Club (Monday Morning Men’s Club) at Ohio Living Cape May this past Monday.
Dan has been in this position for the past four years and was proud to report that there are many positive things taking place at the Wilmington Air Park.
“Today we have 13 employers and over 2,300 employees working at the air park and the future looks very promising,” he said.
He also pointed out that the air park’s runway can handle planes of any size, a real positive.
“We also are the largest airport in the U.S. with no federal money involved,” he added.
When DHL pulled out in 2008, many Clinton Countians thought the air park was finished. Mr. Evers spoke very positively about what is taking place.
“A lot of people are working very hard and we are seeing consistent growth, and with the addition of Amazon, things look very good,” he said. “Amazon at present has a five-year lease (with options) as a distribution and sort center, and it is interesting how many companies contact us due to Amazon’s presence.”
All who were present could not help but leave with positive feelings about the future of the Clinton County Air Park due to the enthusiasm coming from Dan’s talk.
The 3M Club meets at 9 a.m. in the Campus Center at Ohio Living Cape May on the first and third Monday of each month. All senior men are invited. For more information, call Abby Ellsberry, Director of Business Development, at 937-382-2995 or Bob Holmes at 937-382-3673.
