Vanleigh RV, a startup company owned by members of the Tiffin family, is setting up a facility for the manufacture of fifth-wheels in an industrial park in Mississippi’s Tishomingo County.

Officials tell The Daily Corinthian that Vanleigh RV is locating in an 88,000-square-foot building in the Tri-State Commerce Park off U.S. Highway 72 in Burnsville. Vanleigh expects to begin production in March and will initially create 75 new jobs.

County Development Foundation Executive Director Gary Matthews says the company is also setting up a supplier network in the area with the lease of a second industrial park building for one of its suppliers to manufacture RV cabinetry.

The new venture is not part of Red Bay, Ala.-based Tiffin Motorhomes Inc., a long-time builder of high-end luxury motorhomes.
