About DECA Manufacturing

 

Since our incorporation in 1976, DECA manufacturing has grown into a trusted future-focused supplier, with a diverse customer base and set of capabilities.  We are located in a modern facility in Lexington, Ohio. In addition to building quality products, at a competitive price, and delivering on-time; we have differentiated our company by being:

 

  • Flexible. Providing agility in service that allows for quick changes in design and rapid response to shifts in supply and demand.  Our value is in making you successful, and that requires supporting, not resisting change.

  • Responsive. Building a team that is intelligent, collaborative, and capable of acting on customer requests with discipline but not needless bureaucracy. 

  • Smart. Maintaining a forward-thinking mentality that looks for trends in business-related issues such as technology, human resources, and the environment.

 

As one of our staff members said, “Work with us today, because we have your tomorrow.” 

 

Cameron Haring, DECA’s President is actively involved in building that future.  From adding sensors and automation, improving back office systems, and strategically building the DECA team; DECA is expanding its footprint, getting noticed, and supporting the local community.  Cameron is a leader in the community and has been recognized by Forbes for how he is investing in DECA.
