Dutchmen to Open Plant in Syracuse
Dutchmen Manufacturing plans to expand its operations into Syracuse, Ind. with a 110,000-square-foot production facility.
“We’ve made some major changes over the past twelve months at Dutchmen, and it’s really starting to pay off,” says Troy James, vice president of sales for Dutchmen. “Our PDIs are as tight as they’ve ever been, dealers are loving our product lines and product enhancements, and we continue to see increased demand from customers for each of our brands.
“A move into this facility not only broadens our capacity, but because it’s so clean and is very similar to our other plants, we will be able get it up and going very quickly. That’s important as we work hard to continue to capitalize on the strong demand we are experiencing.”
Dutchmen expects to employ 120 people at the new facility once production begins in October.
“The labor force in Syracuse is experienced and skilled in the construction of RVs,” says James. “They understand what it takes, and we’re very much looking forward to being part of the community and benefitting from the impressive work ethic there.”
With the addition of the Syracuse space, Dutchmen now operates out of six facilities. Dutchmen travel trailers and fifth wheels are currently being produced in Goshen and Middlebury, Ind. and Pendleton, Ore.
