Home & Park Motorhomes, a Canadian-based builder of Class B Roadtrek van campers, recently rolled out its 20,000th unit at its headquarters in Kitchener, Ontario.
According to a press release, the vehicle was purchased by McMahon’s RV, a multi-location RV retailer in the greater Los Angeles area and the top seller of Roadtreks.
Brent McMahon accepted the keys of the 20,000th unit from Home & Park Chairman Jeff Hanemaayer and General Manager Jim Hammill during a special ceremony attended by Carl Zehr, mayor of Kitchener.
“We’re very proud to handle Roadtrek,” McMahon said. “And you should be proud of what you build because it’s a quality product that rarely needs to come back for service.”
Home & Park was founded in 1974 by Jac Hanemaayer, with sales to the U.S. starting in 1983 and quickly accounting for 80% of volume. His son, Jeff, took over the business in 1985.
The company currently employs 200 workers operating in a 120,000-square-foot plant that allows production of over 1500 units annually on a single shift.
Home & Park said the first 10,000 units took 24 years to build and the second 10,000 only eight years.
“This achievement represents yet another significant milestone in our 32-year history,” said Jeff Hanemaayer. “I am fully confident with the great people that we have here and at our dealers that significant milestones will continue to be achieved in the ongoing success of Home & Park Motorhomes.”
