EverGreen Adding Third Plant to Meet Demand
EverGreen Recreational Vehicles LLC announced the expansion of its production capabilities with a third manufacturing facility at its campus in Middlebury, Ind., to support the growing demand for the company’s products.
According to a press release, the new production facility was initiated by the company in response to dealer demand for quicker replenishment of EverGreen products in the United States and Canada. The new facility is projected to create 35 new jobs supporting the economic growth of the region.
“In just over one year the EverGreen family of brands has grown in sales over 70% from the previous year,” stated EverGreen President and COO Mark Boessler. “This significant growth has fueled the need for our manufacturing expansion into a third facility. But more importantly, this continuous expansion is the result of our original goal, set by our founders Kelly Rose and Mike Schoeffler, to build unique brands of recreational vehicles that stand alone on their own merits and are never cloned into duplicate brands sold against our own dealers.”
Boessler explained that EverGreen’s products and brands have grown dramatically over the past two years and now include not only the original Ever-Lite, but the i-Go Lite, Ascend, Sun Valley, Bay Hill fifth-wheels, Amped toy haulers and the full line of Lifestyle Luxury Recreational Vehicles.
“EverGreen brands stand alone and can be sold by any dealer wishing to appeal to a specific market niche without the worry of a duplicate dealership cutting into his business across town,” said Boessler, stressing the company’s “no-clone” strategy. “This is why we will continue this great run.”
Boessler alluded to more brands in the works. “We’ve had a great year so far with growth in all segments of the market and phenomenal response to all our product and floor plan introductions,” he said. “We look forward to the Dealer Open House this year with at least 50 units on display – double from last year. We will have our new Amped toy haulers in full force and some new, hot selling, very unique brands we will be offering existing and new EverGreen dealers.”
