Lippert Settles in At Massive South Bend Site
The company expects to open up the building entirely in mid-August with about 150 employees, said April Klein-Carroll, vice president of aftermarket parts and customer service.
In March, LCI announced plans to invest $2.8 million in the former distribution center for A.J. Wright in South Bend.
Some aftermarket shipping products are already in the warehouse, including some Denver Mattress bedding, sheets and comforters made for RV beds.
Besides serving as a warehouse, the mammoth South Bend facility, which is large enough to cover nine football fields, will house Lippert Components’ aftermarket, customer service and dealer relations teams as well as its publication group, Klein-Carroll said.
“We have a lot of parts and pieces in there,” she said, including interior inventory that LCI sells to original equipment manufacturers.
