Thor Industries Inc. Wednesday (March 27) announced that it has completed the planned move of its corporate headquarters to Beardsley Avenue along the St. Joseph River in downtown Elkhart, Ind.
According to a news release, Thor was previously headquartered in Jackson Center, Ohio, and announced the move in January as a strategic decision to be more accessible and active in the community where a large majority of RVs are produced and more than 70% of the company’s operations are located.
The new headquarters building was previously unoccupied and was renovated to include new design features providing a “world-class atmosphere,” according to Thor.
The reuse of this building is a prime example of the recent efforts being made to revitalize the downtown Elkhart area, Thor said in the release. The new office will have the capacity to host a variety of meetings and events with dealers, suppliers, investors and the broader Elkhart community. Thor’s corporate human resources, finance and accounting, legal and information technology departments are now housed at the new facility.
“We are pleased with the smooth transition to our new offices on Beardsley Avenue and are looking forward to working in close proximity to the majority of our production facilities as well as our key suppliers,” said Thor President and COO Bob Martin. “In addition, our new offices provide us with the flexibility to host events that showcase our RV and bus products on-site. We believe the investment in our new headquarters will provide a significant return in the form of more efficient management of Thor’s resources in Elkhart and the surrounding area, as well as even stronger relationships with our customers and suppliers.”
