Former Carriage Inc. 55-Acre Complex for Sale
A little over 10 months after Carriage Inc. shut down its luxury RV operations, the former company’s 55-acre site in Millersburg, Ind., is up for sale, The Elkhart Truth reported.
The campus includes 19 buildings, according to information from Key Auctioneers of Indianapolis, the company handling the sale and also serving as court-appointed receiver for the company’s assets.
“This premier industrial real estate offers endless potential for buyers in manufacturing, engineering and distribution,” said Jeff Doner, principal broker at Key Auctioneers. “Among the property’s 19 buildings is a five-year-old, 170,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. The facility is state-of-the-art with high ceilings, wide bays, lots of power and plenty of loading doors.”
Carriage started in the late 1960s and built a reputation for quality high-end fifth wheels. The company ended production abruptly last year, putting about 200 people out of work after it was unable to reach an agreement with PNC Bank over a loan, according to court documents.
The company’s assets were auctioned off in February. Thor Industries’ Redwood RV bought the Carriage name and brands at that auction.
