From Fiberglass Manufacturing to Passion Projects
The Dillon Manufacturing journey began in 1988 when Janice Loden founded Express Products in Dallas, TX. Exclusively specializing in wholesale aftermarket vehicle parts, graphics, and accessories for the first decade, EP became Dillon Manufacturing with the purchase of Stan Co. in 1999. With that purchase came Stan Co.’s three employees, who are still with us today.
In 2001, we added cell tower covers to our production line while also beginning a passion project of making fiberglass hunting blinds for family and friends in our spare time. To further pursue fiberglass fabrication, Dillon Manufacturing sold our wholesale parts division in 2002. This allowed us to shift focus to production on fiberglass car parts, boat hulls, and the full production of our fiberglass blinds.
Once full production of our fiberglass hunting blinds was underway, we focused on making improvements and producing different blinds styles to fulfill our customers’ needs. Simultaneously, we expanded our range of fiberglass products to include medical equipment and rock-climbing walls components.
In 2016 our namesake and son of Janice, Dillon Vaughn, came on board participating in the daily operations, sales, and design of hunting blinds. With Dillon taking over blind design, we began a new innovation period, which resulted in new framed flip-up windows with friction hinges, marine decking flooring, ventilation holes, and RV type doors in all of our blinds. While production for our hunting blinds has become the primary focus, we continue manufacturing high-quality custom fiberglass parts.
What started as a passion project when we were producing for just family and friends has become the focus for Dillon Manufacturing. Our passion for hunting, combined with our experience, drives us to innovate and manufacture blinds to suit hunters'. When you purchase any of our hunting products, whether it's a blind, tower, or feeder, you know you bought a product for hunters by hunters.
