REVREV Recreation Group has initiated an expansion at its manufacturing campus in Decatur, Ind., including a renovation and expansion of its group visitor center, according to a posting on the company’s website.

In addition, REV acquired a new facility and reconfigured another plant to accommodate further growth. Construction, totaling $6 million in improvements, is expected to be complete by the end of August. A special ribbon-cutting ceremony is also planned.

The growing campus, which now encompasses more than 180 acres, is home to American Coach, Monaco Coach, Holiday Rambler and Fleetwood RV. The footprint includes five production facilities, three parts and service buildings and two plants that house REV’s Goldshield Fiberglass operations. More than 6,000 square feet is dedicated to product development.

The renovation of the visitor center alone will include REV’s 84,800-square-foot East Coast Regional Technical Center along with a new two-story addition, open-model atrium and loft-style lounge. RV owners can also gather with friends on the entertainment patio, which features two gas pits and a laundry facility, on-site showers and 49 paved campsites will be complimentary to guests.

“Service is a priority at REV. Before, during and after the sale, we’re going to take care of our customers,” said Jim Jacobs, REV Recreation Group president. “Not only will these guest accommodations be one-of-a-kind, but we have two more regional technical centers conveniently located in the U.S., with a fourth center in the works in Mesquite, Nevada. And of course, we have our network of trusted dealers.”

REV Recreation Group will also reopen Plant 3 in August, which is currently being reconfigured for the exclusive production of American Coach and Monaco Coach. The plant will maximize 137,000 square feet on more than 21 acres for the focused production of Class A luxury motorhomes.

As part of REV Recreation Group’s 2016 transformation, REV acquired a 50,000-square-foot facility to help meet production demand. After refurbishing the building with new equipment this spring, REV moved the production of Holiday Rambler Admiral and Fleetwood RV Flare to the Plant 5 facility. The plant’s opening also allowed for REV’s re-introduction of its Class C product offerings as new 2017 model year Holiday Rambler Vesta and Fleetwood RV Jamboree are rolling off the line

“It’s been a transformative year for REV Recreation Group,” Jacobs said. “With these changes, we’re putting even more focus on answering product demand and providing exemplary service. It’s an exciting year to be a REV motorhome owner.”
