CrossRoads Cruiser Aire

CrossRoads RV has announced plans to expand its operations in LaGrange County, Ind., which could create up to 250 new jobs by 2014.

The fifth-wheel and travel trailer manufacturer has plans to invest $3.9 million to purchase land and build a 93,000-square-foot plant. CrossRoads RV already maintains a 45.3-acre facility in the area.

“The new plant will give us the needed flexibility to expand our Cruiser line of RVs,” says Don Emahiser, president of CrossRoads RV. “The work force in Topeka is top-notch in our industry, and we are glad that we are able to expand at our home in this area.”

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered CrossRoads RV up to $2.25 million in conditional tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants should the company meet job-creation targets.
