Jayco Expanding Middlebury Manufacturing

Monday, March 20, 2017

Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE:THO) announced that its Jayco subsidiary has broken ground on several building projects, with some near completion or recently completed. The new facilities, which are in response to the growing demand for Jayco's travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers and motorhomes, will add over 400,000 square feet of production space to its Middlebury, Indiana campus and over 300 expected jobs. 

The new buildings include two manufacturing plants, one that will produce the Eagle brand of travel trailers and fifth wheels, and another that will produce Jayco's line of luxury fifth wheels including the North Point, Pinnacle, and Designer. The added facilities will free space in the current production facilities for additional Jay Flight and lightweight travel trailer production.


In addition, Jayco has added a dedicated Mill Room and Lamination facility for Jayco's motorized products.


"Our end goal is to continue to provide top level products and service to our dealers and retail customers," stated Matt Thompson, Jayco, Inc. Chief Operating Officer. "We want to continue to set the standard for the industry and the new buildings give us the space we need to do so."
