Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is growing operations across Indiana’s Elkhart County with facilities in Elkhart, Wakarusa, and Bristol marked for expansion.

“We are expanding our manufacturing footprint to meet the strong consumer demand for our products. These significant expansion projects will allow us to serve our dealer network with improved delivery times,” stated TMC President Jeff Kime in a press release.

In all, more than a half-million square feet of workspace is being added, increasing the overall size of Thor Motor Coach’s five Elkhart County campuses to 2.3 million square feet of manufacturing space, spread across 300 acres.

Planned projects include:

• The company will expand in Wakarusa with the purchase of an existing building for Class C production and a new lamination operation with six lamination lines to support motorhome production at multiple facilities.

• TMC is completing an addition to a Class C campus in Bristol to support its popular Quantum motorhome line. 

• The builder is making a major addition to a Class A plant in Elkhart that will enable the addition of a future second production line for some of the highest volume, in-demand gas Class A motorhome models. 

Plans to start production at these facility additions will commence in late summer and continue through the remainder of calendar 2017. 

Thor Motor Coach has begun hiring with a need for 400 additional employees to work in these areas, continuing to provide excellent employment opportunities and a great work environment.  A job fair is planned for July 27 at the Thor Motor Coach plant located at the corner of State Route 19 and Hively Avenue in Elkhart.

“We are convinced that the dealers we have at Thor Motor Coach are the best in the industry.  We want to make sure we solidify our relationships and this begins with providing our dealers with our popular motorhomes in a more timely fashion. The expansion plans we have in place will allow us to continue our rapid sales growth into future years,” noted Dana Simon, vice president of sales.
