                         For the second time in two days, Thor Industries Inc. announced an expansion that will result in new jobs for Indiana’s Elkhart County.

As reported by the South Bend Tribune, Thor said Tuesday (Sept. 16) that its Keystone RV Co. subsidiary has begun construction on a new plant for travel trailer production adjacent to its existing complex in Goshen. The cost including equipment is estimated at $6 million. That comes on the heels of the announced $8 million expansion of its Heartland RV subsidiary on Monday.

Will there be more such announcements this week?

“You never know,” Bob Martin, president and CEO of Elkhart-based Thor Industries, said Tuesday afternoon.

What he does know is that on the heels of a strong retail show in Hershey, Pa., last week and record numbers of dealers at his company’s annual fall open house in Elkhart, the RV boom can continue.

“For us, Heartland is doing incredibly well,” Martin said. “Keystone has been one of the top manufacturers for many years, and they have continued to expand. For us, a lot of it is we are building even more products that are targeting new RV customers.”
