Keystone RV Co., Goshen, Ind., has announced it will expand the company’s Indiana operations with the opening of a 160,000-square-foot facility in Howe near the Indiana Toll Road.
Keystone President Ron Fenech said in a press release that, with the assistance of training grants from the state, over 250 new full-time jobs will be in place over the next three years, with over 100 jobs added by the end of this year. The plant is scheduled to open in June.
With a target capacity of 60-70 units per week, Fenech said that the plant will manufacture an entry-level travel trailer soon to be announced.
“This is our 20th manufacturing plant in Indiana,” Fenech said. “Our ability to expand at this time is a result of our continued record sales through the first four months of this year.”
Doug Rheinheimer, executive vice president of manufacturing for Keystone, said that Pat Fox has been hired to become the new plant’s manager.
Economic development infrastructure grants from the state to LaGrange County also encouraged Keystone in this project, Fenech said.
“LaGrange county is excited and looking forward to having Keystone in our community now and in the future,” said Gary Zehr, LaGrange County economic development director. “Keystone offers excellent job opportunities from a solid and well-respected company.”
