Last week, a vital piece of the Richland County economic scene recently celebrated a new chapter in its history.
City, county, and state officials, as well as the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce, were on hand as DECA Manufacturing celebrated new ownership with a ribbon-cutting.
Cameron Haring purchased DECA back in August of 2018 to pursue his dream of entrepreneurship. DECA is a contract manufacturer specializing in wire harnesses and cable assemblies. He plans to build on the firm’s current strengths by adding services such as laser wire stripping. He also wants to expand DECA’s ability to offer complete solutions such as box builds and prototype building. DECA serves a wide variety of industries including: aerospace, Tier II automotive, recreational vehicles, commercial and industrial equipment, defense, and medical.
Cameron’s support of local industrial interests goes beyond DECA. He is a member of the Economic Advocacy Council, Startup Weekend Organizing Committee and will be supporting STEM activities such as Stellar Robotics. In addition to having local roots in the area, Haring has great roots in technical products. Prior to owning DECA, Cameron was a senior manager with Thermo Fisher scientific for over a decade.
