Dometic Offering Dealer Tours For Open House
Elkhart, Ind.-based Dometic Corp. announced its VIP activities exclusively for recreational vehicle dealers during the upcoming Elkhart County RV Open House in northern Indiana. According to a press release, dealers visiting Dometic will be treated to gifts, refreshments and factory tours on Sept. 17-18 from 2-6 p.m.
“It’s a treat for us to have so many of our RV dealer customers in the neighborhood, so we wanted to roll out the red carpet and welcome them to our facility for a visit and some nice thankyou gifts from us,” explained Mark Minatel, vice president of RV aftermarket sales.
Dometic’s RV division’s office and production headquarters is located at 2320 Industrial Parkway in Elkhart, about five minutes from the Open House’s main corridor of activity on County Road 17. Tours will be offered through Dometic’s refrigeration assembly operations, part of which was moved to Elkhart from Sweden in order to bring more of its RV division products and processes to the hub of the RV industry and Dometic’s customers.
“This production line contains robotics and other high-tech elements that make our refrigeration assembly and testing extremely precise and efficient; and really, it’s just fun to watch,” said Jim Menefee, Dometic’s vice president of operations. “We’re really looking forward to showing our RV dealer friends around and letting them see what Dometic has here.”
Visiting dealer customers will receive a goodie bag containing items such as Dometic’s Breathe Easy portable air purifier. Dealers will also be entered in the grand prize drawing as three winners will be chosen daily receive their choice of a Dometic portable ice maker or wine chiller.
