Scott West has joined Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc. as a regional sales manager for the company’s Coleman product line.
According to a press release, he will serve dealers in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States, as well as the Eastern provinces of Canada. West will also have responsibility for further expanding the significant market share increase experienced by Coleman’s three travel trailer lines in the past year.
West brings 14 years of RV industry experience to his new position. “Scott has worked in sales, engineering, purchasing, bill of materials and production for various brands and types of RVs,” Troy James, general manager, noted. “His well-rounded knowledge provides a unique understanding of what goes into an RV and why. We’re excited he’s handling the Coleman line.”
Coleman produces Expedition LT, Expedition conventional and Explorer ultralite travel trailers. These products range from a cozy, inexpensive 14-footer to a spacious 33-footer. The 100-year-old Coleman Co. is a world leader in the production of camping gear and outdoor equipment. “Coleman is really going places,” West said. “I couldn’t believe all the expansion projects happening at Dutchmen. They’re planning for the future big time.”
