Hunt Midwest has leased 90,000 square feet in SubTropolis to automotive equipment maker Dejana Truck & Utility Equipment for a new Ford Transit and Ford F-150 upfitting operation. The company will also lease two additional acres in SubTropolis for vehicle staging.

Dejana is the 14th auto company to choose Subtropolis’ Automotive Alley for upfitting, distribution or coordination operations in the past six years.

Since 2011, more than a dozen automotive-related companies have located in either SubTropolis or its companion surface park Hunt Midwest Business Center, for a total footprint of nearly 800,000 square feet of leased space and 120 acres of developed land.
