As work continues on its new Wixom, Mich., dealership, General RV Center Inc. is making plans to open a dealership in Florida near Tampa.
Crain’s Detroit Business reported that the 83,000-square-foot dealership will be located on 30 acres adjacent to I-4 in Dover, Fla., and feature a recreational vehicle service center, parts area and showroom.
“That’s a good RV market … one of the best … in the country,” said Dennis Anderson, vice president of marketing.
Meanwhile, construction on the privately owned company’s new site in Wixom, on 34 acres that were once part of the Ford Wixom Plant, is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014.
The company has added 100 new jobs across its six Michigan dealerships in Wixom, White Lake Township, Mount Clemens, Brownstown Township, Birch Run and Wayland/Grand Rapids and sites in North Canton, Ohio; Huntley, Ill.; Draper, Utah; and Jacksonville, Fla., since January, Anderson said. That’s brought its total employee numbers to about 700.
It plans to add roughly another 100 additional positions in marketing, sales and service across those locations by spring.
General RV did not release what it’s investing in the Florida project, expected to be completed by fall 2014.
