Decorator Industries Inc., an interior furnishings supplier to the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing and hospitality sectors, is consolidating RV operations in Indiana.
The Pembroke Pines, Fla., company said that it is closing its facility in Elkhart and moving production to Goshen. Both locations supply the RV industry which has been” negatively impacted by high fuel prices, the credit crisis and low consumer confidence.
The move should be completed by Oct. 31, and “will not cause any disruptions in product offerings or service to the customers.”
According to Decortor Industries, the Goshen location was chosen because it is closer to most of the company’s customers and is the better manufacturing facility.
“The consolidation will allow the company to be more efficient and better utilize the Goshen facility,” Decorator said in a release. “Additionally, we have room for expansion when business improves. We expect to retain most of the existing work force, which has already been significantly reduced by the slowdown in the RV industry.”
