“Fiscal 2019 was a truly significant year as we brought together two great companies to form Skyline Champion,” said CEO Keith Anderson. “We made meaningful progress in our integration, while also delivering impressive growth and operational improvement.”

He added, “The company is on track with our previously announced capacity expansions in Pennsylvania and Louisiana as well as our strategic initiatives to continue to drive future value for our employees, customers and shareholders. While we experienced some demand softness during the fourth quarter due in part to weather and retail inventory levels, we were able to generate strong year-over-year margin expansion, and we believe the longer-term demand environment remains healthy as we look into fiscal 2020.”
