More than 100 employees are back to work at a Wichita, Kan.-based RV Products, according to a local TV station.
KWCH-TV reported that the supplier of air conditioners to the RV industry temporarily closed last November, blaming the economy for slowing work. The company reopened today (Jan. 5) as planned.
President Mel Adams said he hopes the firm won’t have to shut down the plant again. He noted that it’s hard to tell now if the market has gained strength since November as December and January are traditionally slow months for sales in the RV industry.
Adams expects to see some indication of future sales figures by the end of the month.
He is also optimistic about GMAC’s decision to approve new auto loans. The financing affiliate of General Motors began aggressively trying to draw consumers back into dealerships early last week.
RV Products is a division of Airxcel Inc., also based in Wichita.
