Pitts Trailer Purchases Dorsey

The one-time largest private employer in the Wiregrass is back in business with a few changes.

Last year, Phenix City-based Pitts Trailers bought Dorsey in US Bankruptcy Court.

Today, the Elba-based company employs 70 Wiregrass residents. It is a far cry from the 1,500 on the payroll in the 1970's.

But the company's president says it's just the beginning; with new orders coming in everyday, he hopes to have some 300-workers in just 2-years.

Those interested in employment with Dorsey can go by the company's Elba office during regular business hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
