RV power-generation supplier Onan Corp. announced today (Sept. 24) the continuation of a long-term exclusive agreement with Fleetwood Enterprises Inc., Riverside, Calif.
According to a press release, the current agreement entails exclusive installation of Onan generator sets on all of Fleetwood’s motorized and towable recreational vehicles. The Onan-Fleetwood exclusive agreement, which has been renewed year after year for over 20 years, now extends through 2007.
“We are thrilled to continue such a longtime relationship with Onan,” said Charlie Reick, director of materials and strategic sourcing for Fleetwood Enterprises. “Onan gensets are a big contributor to Fleetwood customer satisfaction.”
The agreement also fits in with Fleetwood’s recent strategy to partner with vendors, as the company has forged exclusive agreements with several suppliers, including Goodyear, Spartan Chassis, Dupont and Caterpillar Inc.
Onan of Minneapolis and a subsidiary of Cummins Inc., in Columbus, Ind., provides more than 10,000 generators per year to Fleetwood.
The Onan-Fleetwood agreement includes installation of Onan’s MicroQuiet 4000, Marquis Gold 5500, and the Quiet Diesel 7500.
