TACO Honoring Champion/Athens Park Homes

Champion/Athens Park Homes was named Supplier of the Year by the Texas Association of Campground Owners (TACO).

“Champion/Athens Park Homes is a preferred provider of TACO because they provide a quality product and they do what they say they’re going to do,” Brian Schaeffer, TACO’s executive director and CEO stated in a news release. “Several members nominated them for this prestigious award, which is to their credit.”

Champion/Athens reported it has seen its business continue to grow in recent years. “We have sold to 49 different campgrounds and resorts here in Texas,” said Dick Grymonprez, director of national park model sales for Champion/Athens. “We do a lot of business with TACO members and a lot of them continue to buy from us each year.”

Grymonprez added that the majority of the park models produced by Champion/Athens Park Homes are being used by campgrounds, RV parks and resorts as rental accommodations.

Champion Home Builders Inc. acquired Athens Park Homes of Athens, Texas last August in a move that significantly expanded the company’s ability to produce and deliver park models at competitive prices. Troy, Mich.-based Champion is a leader in factory-built housing, which it manufactures in 29 facilities across North America and United Kingdom.

Eight of Champion’s park model manufacturing facilities are located at strategic locations across the United States: Texas; Chandler, Ariz.; Lake City, Fla.; Lillington, N.C.; Sangerfield, N.Y.; Weiser, Idaho; and York, Neb.

Athens Park Homes was founded in late 2004 by a group of investors led by Phil Surles, the former COO of Champion Homes. For more information on Champion/Athens, visit the company’s park model website at
