Distributor firm Dehco Inc., parent of Cast Products and TriStar, will invest around $750,000 in building a 37,500-square-foot addition on to its warehouse in Elkhart, Ind., according to the South Bend (Ind.) Tribune.
The expansion is necessary because Dehco’s volume is up 50%, according to William Shroyer, executive vice president.
Dehco will have 200,000 square feet of space in its warehouse at 58263 Charlotte Ave., Elkhart, once the expansion is completed in late October, he added.
Cast is a distributor of building and plumbing supplies to the RV and manufactured housing industries while TriStar distributes electronics to the RV and leisure marine industries.
The warehouse expansion will allow Dehco to add several new product lines, Shroyer said.
Dehco acquired TriStar in 1999 and it transferred TriStar’s operations from nearby Goshen, Ind., to Elkhart last March.
