William Kuehne has joined Elkhart, Ind.-based supplier Elixir Industries Inc. as division manager of its aluminum extrusion and RV products for its reopened facility in Mishawaka, according to a press release.

Previously Kuehne has held management positions with companies supplying the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing, mass transit and heavy truck industries.

Elixir President and COO Dwight Knowles reported that the Mishawaka plant, which had been in operation for over 35 years, reopened in 2011 with a number of additional offerings. Since reopening, the division has introduced an RV entry door with a production process that is “one of a kind in the industry,” according to Knowles.

He noted that new and additional jobs will become available at the Mishawaka location as the division restarts idled equipment and customer demand continues to increase.
