Fleetwood Enterprises Inc.’s RV Group has named DuPont Performance Coatings as its sole-source paint supplier.
Fleetwood RV now will feature DuPont paints and will partner with DuPont in process control to create better application methodologies.
Fleetwood’s motorhome plants will begin the transition to DuPont paints immediately and the transition to be completed by the end of April.
The five-year, sole-source agreement further expands an existing relationship between Fleetwood RV and DuPont, which currently supplies Fleetwood with DuPont Corian countertops.
“We were looking for a paint supplier that could deliver the technology, innovation and quality that our customers demand,” said Chris Braun, senior vice president of Fleetwood RV. “This partnership in process control, backed by DuPont’s 90 years of experience in the automotive and truck industries, is a great addition to Fleetwood RV’s product offering.”
The relationship with DuPont is the second sole-source supplier agreement Fleetwood RV has reached recently. During the National RV Trade Show in Louisville in December, Fleetwood named Goodyear its sole-source supplier for tires.
