Elkhart, Ind.-based Echo Manufacturing LLC, a builder of lightweight travel trailers and toy haulers, announced the appointment of Charlie Phillips as national sales manager.

According to a press release, Phillips has more than 20 years experience in both wholesale and retail, most recently in the Midwest with a major manufacturer.

“Working for a small manufacturer like Echo is something that I always wanted to do,” said Phillips. “To get in on the ground floor and grow a company is exciting and challenging. I’m looking forward to the hard work and rewards”

Echo also announced participation in the annual Elkhart Open House slated for September 18-21 in northern Indiana. Echo will be set up at the corner of Beck Drive and County Road 17 on Elkhart’s east side, less than a mile away from the major manufacturers.
