Dynamax Corp., manufacturer of the Isata sport and touring sedan, is building a new manufacturing plant in Elkhart, Ind., in order to increase its output, according to DeWayne Creighton, president.

The new 135,000-square-foot production plant on the north side of Elkhart will be used for building both Isata- and Starflyte-brand units, Creighton said.

Production at the new plant will begin during July, he added.

The Isata Touring Sedan is a Class A motorhome that ranges in length from 22-to-28 feet and the Isata Sport Sedan is a Class C motorhome ranging from 22-to-31-feet long.

Meanwhile, Starflyte is a series of Class B and Class C motorhomes. It is one of the brands Dynamax acquired early this year when it bought the assets of COA Automotive, the former van conversion subsidiary of Coachmen Industries Inc.

Dynamax, an affiliate of van conversion manufacturer Glaval Corp., currently employs about 70 people building Isata units and about 35 people building Starflyte units. The combined Isata and Starflyte operation will employ “a couple hundred” people within 12 months, Creighton added.
