New business coming to City of Opp

Dyne Products out of Illinois is setting up shop in Opp.

They are a small, niche manufacturing company that manufactures and sells basement window well covers and egress escape ladders.

“I know we don’t have a lot of that down here, but their products are well known in the north and we will be shipping them out of Opp,” Opp Mayor Becky Bracke said. “He is renting a space from J.R. and hopes to get started around September.”

Bracke said the owner of Dyne Products reached out to Covington County Economic Development Commission president Rick Clifton asking about Opp.

“He looked at Dothan first,” Bracke said. “But he wants to be closer to the beach and he also wants to be close to a racetrack. He thought that Opp would be a perfect location.”

Dyne Products plans to work out of the old cut and sew facility on West Cumming Ave., and will be looking to hire five to eight people. They are also in need of an office manager with wide skills. If interested, send a resume to roy@dyneproducts.com.

Bracke said another business coming to Opp is really exciting.

“Another business, another job opportunity and more revenue coming to the City of Opp,” Bracke said. “It’s just really exciting.”
