Bankston Motor Homes, an Alabama-based dealership founded 43 years ago, is expanding with a new facility in service facility in Ardmore, Tenn., bringing new jobs to the area.
AL.com reported that Bankston Motor Homes, which currently operates Alabamas store in Huntsville, Florence and Albertville along with an outlet in Nashville, Tenn., will open the RV service and repair facility later this year in a former Clayton Homes complex. The site will include three buildings with 104,000 square feet of multi-use space on an 8.5-acre tract. The company also owns property across the street for future development. The RV dealership did not disclose a purchase price or how much it has invested in the new facility.
“Bankston Motor Homes is proud to be a part of the Ardmore community,” said Harrison Bankston, president of Bankston Motor Homes, in a prepared statement. “I am excited about the opportunity this new facility will afford us. It will enable us not only to continue to deliver essential repair services, but it will also provide enough space for continued expansion into other areas important to our RV customers.”
In addition to providing maintenance, body shop work and assistance with RV insurance claims, the Ardmore facility will have a large indoor storage space for owners to park their RVs during the off season to prevent damage from weather.
