Grand Design RV Expanding Again
(Press Release) Grand Design Recreational Vehicle Company along with Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Lt Governor Eric Holcomb, broke ground May 12th on the company’s expansion project adjacent to their current 67 acre complex.
Co-Owners Ron and Bill Fenech were on hand to address the crowd of nearly 250 people in attendance for the Ground Breaking Ceremony. CEO and Co-Owner, Don Clark, was unable to attend due to an Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Ceremony at which he was announced as a finalist.
With plans for two new buildings, the first will be used to increase production rates of the new Imagine Travel Trailer that has been so incredibly well received. This will also allow for a much needed increase in capacity for the highly demanded Reflection product line. The second building will be a state-of-the-art customer service facility that includes a campground for the convenience of Grand Design owners.
With the recently acquired 48 acres now under construction, Grand Design is not only expanding its foot print, but its work force as well. “Grand Design expects to hire over one hundred new employees in phase one of this project, and I would like to personally thank everyone on our all-star team that has made this possible”, stated Clark.
Ron Fenech added, “In Elkhart County we have an amazing workforce to draw from and we have been fortunate enough to really tap into the best of the best. It sounds like platitudes, it’s really not, our workers are phenomenal,” stated Ron Fenech, Co-Owner of Grand Design RV.
Nuway Construction, a design/build general contractor, located in Goshen was selected for the project. Randy Huffman, President of Nuway Construction stated, “We are thrilled to have been selected for this project. The new production facility and new customer service facility will allow Grand Design to move forward to meet their growing customers’ needs. This Grand Design expansion project will be completed by December 2016.”
