Furrion is not your typical RV components manufacturer.
“We kind of call it the ‘Google-esque’ company of Indiana and Elkhart,” said Matt Petrill, Furrion’s vice president of operations, noting that the electronics and appliance supplier has 45 employees at its Elkhart, Ind., headquarters.
According to an ABC 57 report, when you walk around the shiny, new showrooms and offices, you might think you’ve arrived in Silicon Valley.
“Our mission statement is to be future perfect,” said Petrill.
Furrion’s founders specifically wanted to create this “future-perfect” experience for their customer’s right in the heart of the RV industry.
Petrill explained, “Eighty percent of your RVs are built right here. And the company saw that synergy with our suppliers and our OEMs that produce RVs in this area, so it made natural sense for us to locate and center our headquarters right here in Elkhart.”
“We do a lot of different things here to just try to create a culture of innovation, but also we’re kind of a close-knit family here,” he continued.
The company’s new headquarters was built in 2017 to cultivate that culture.
Employees can take a break and check out the country club complete with a golf simulator, a fully-stocked gym, then freshen up in the sauna and showers.
