CK Technologies opening Fort Worth plant at Alliance Gateway

CK Technologies, an Ohio firm that produces components for commercial trucks and buses, is opening a 200,000-square-foot plant at Alliance Gateway in December that will serve Peterbilt, a local client.

CK expects to hire 50 people, President Mark Miller said. The plant will "be up and running by late December. We're on a real tight time frame," he said.

The plant will make, paint, and sequence components for Peterbilt, he said.

The company is hosting a job fair 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Alliance Opportunity Center, 13825 Aviator Way in Fort Worth. CK's job postings at www.workintexas.com include manager, quality conntrol, accountant, HR generalist, supervisor, technici9ans, forklift and production.

CK will hold two rounds of interviews, said Janet Benton, center manager at the Alliance Opportunity Center. The first will be a screening round, to determine if candidates meet minimum qualifications. The second, for candidates who pass the first round, will be with the plant manager she said.

Benton recommended perusing the job postings at workintexas.com and bringing a resume to the fair.

CK also opened a manufacturing plant in Brownsville this summer that makes injection-molded components for Peterbilt in Fort Worth, Navistar in Garland, and two factories in Mexico.
