Jayco Realigns Open Range as Highland Ridge
Jayco Corp. President and CEO Derald Bontrager has introduced the leadership team of the newly formed Highland Ridge RV, a result of the company’s recent acquisition of Open Range RV Co.
The Middlebury, Ind.-based company reported in a press release, that Highland Ridge officers will include: Randy Graber, president; Bill Flint, general manager and vice president of sales and marketing; and Chris Good, director of administrative services. Graber is the former president of Open Range.
Day-to-day activities will now operate under the new corporate name, Highland Ridge RV, while product will continue to be branded as Open Range. Jayco’s intention is to build upon the strong foundation Open Range has built over the years and said that production will continue with no anticipated disruptions.
“We are truly excited to be producing Open Range branded products,” said Bontrager. “Open Range is a recognized leader of innovative products. We are confident great things will come of this for both parties involved.”
Graber commented, “There is no doubt we made the right decision to join forces with Jayco. Their strong history, market share, and unmatched reputation in the industry will benefit Highland Ridge RV and continue the growth and future success of the Open Range brand.”
Highland Ridge RV will continue to operate and produce out of its Shipshewana, Ind., facilities.
