Jayco Paint Shop Buy Meets Coach Demand
High demand for its products led Jayco Corp. to acquire Herremans Custom Paint & Graphics in Elkhart, Ind.
As reported by the South Bend Tribune, Herremans will serve as an additional resource to help meet the needs of Jayco and Entegra Coach motorhomes. The move could result in additional jobs being added at Herremans, Ashley Lehman, spokesperson with Jayco, said.
“The plan is to add as needed,” Lehman said in a phone interview. “Maybe not immediately but as Jayco’s and Entegra Coach’s motorhomes increase, then they would add accordingly. The thinking is that they will be needing some additional employees in the coming months and year.”
Currently 43 people work at Herremans.
Lehman added, “Motorhomes in general across the industry are going very well and Jayco is seeing the impact of that. It gives us direct access to a paint shop to meet the increasing demands as well as give us a little bit more flexibility to changing products quicker and the paint schemes. It gives us a little bit more control.”
