FLEETWOOD RV HOSTS GOVERNOR MITCH DANIELS AND THE INDIANA ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
Decatur, Ind. – (March 22, 2012) – Fleetwood RV’s bolstering growth brought Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) board of directors to the headquarters in Decatur today.
Fleetwood RV, a leading manufacturer of Class A and Class C recreational vehicles, relocated its headquarters to Decatur in 2009 after consolidating its California and Pennsylvania manufacturing operations. The IEDC invested up to $9 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company’s accelerated job creation plans. The company currently employs 1,106 employees at the Decatur manufacturing facility and recently hired 170 temporary employees to work on a four-month project.
Much of Fleetwood RV’s success is attributed to their continued commitment to innovation to both their Fleetwood and American Coach brands including cutting-edge engineering design, exciting features, unique interior decors and stunning exterior graphics. The company recently introduced the Excursion, a 33’, Class A diesel model which has earned high accolades for its exquisite features and amenities.
“Through Governor Daniels’ leadership, the efforts of the IEDC and the hard-working principles of the citizens of Indiana, this state has become a model for economic growth and job creation,” stated John Draheim, President & CEO of Fleetwood RV. “As Fleetwood RV continues to grow, we plan to add more jobs and help to create an exciting future for the people of Indiana.”
