The Volvo Group invested $2.6 million in 2015 into the renovation of a former textile storage facility in Advance. The 210,000 square-foot facility is located on 38 acres near Interstate 40, enabling easier transportation of materials. To keep up with growing demand, DEX opened a second location in 2019 in Oklahoma City.
