Kingsley Coach Inc. will more than triple its current manufacturing capacity near its existing facility in Andover, Minn., because of a continued increase in demand for its coaches.
“Kingsley has seen explosive growth due to the recent increase in orders for our medical units, entertainment units and specialized Homeland Security Command Centers and we have outgrown the manufacturing capacity at our existing facilities,” said Ralph Dickenson, CEO of Kingsley Coach, Inc. “With the current backlog of 16 coaches and the projected accelerating rate of growth for Kingsley over the balance of the year and beyond, we are looking to more than triple our current capacity.
He said Kingsley expects to complete a lease for more space in Andover soon.
Kingsley manufactures standard and custom motorhomes and special-use coaches. It uses class 8 or 7 semi-truck chassis, powered by truck tractors fromsuch top-name companies as Freightliner, Volvo and Peterbuilt.
Kingsley units have automatic transmissions, a heavily reinforced body and a 500,000-mile guarantee.
