Luxury fifth-wheel manufacturer Carriage Inc. announced today (Nov. 1) that Mel Mattix has rejoined the company as director of purchasing, a position he held from 2000-2005.
Since that time, Mattix was a partner in North American Traveler and, most recently, general manager of ITC Inc.’s Elkhart RV Sales Division. “We knew Mel would someday return to Carriage. The experience he has gained in the last five years will serve us well in the future,” Glenn Cushman, president of Millersburg, Ind.-based Carriage, stated in a news release.
“I have stayed close with the people at Carriage. I am excited about their new products and have always been impressed with their quality and integrity,” said Mattix, who is an Elkhart resident and a 16-year veteran of the RV Industry. “I’m glad to be back home. I look forward to hitting the floor running.”
Founded in 1968, Carriage manufactures Cameo, Carri-Lite, Royals International and the recently introduced Cabo fifth-wheel lines on a 72-acre campus, with distribution in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
