Lippert said Jenkins recently assumed responsibility for the manufacture of new products such as Lippert’s “Level-Up” levelers, in-wall slide-out mechanism and RV entry doors, “which have quickly gained market share.” Jenkins, he added, will also be involved in new-product development.
Adam Clark, general manager of Lippert Components’ Indiana RV chassis operation, has been promoted to director of manufacturing with responsibility for all of the company’s Indiana RV and manufactured housing chassis production. “Chassis production is complex, and for the past 13 years Adam has been a driving force in enabling Lippert Components to become the leading chassis builder in the RV industry,” said Lippert.
