TOPEKA, Ind. (Dec. 28, 2011) - DS Corp d/b/a Crossroads RV, a manufacturer of fifth-wheel and towable recreational vehicles, announced plans today to expand its operations here, creating up to 250 new jobs by 2014.
Topeka-headquartered Crossroads RV, a division of Thor Motor Coach, will invest $3.9 million to purchase land and construct a new 93,000 square-foot facility adjacent to the company’s existing 45.3-acre campus in Topeka. The new facility will house the company’s Cruiser product line and is expected to be operational in June.
“Indiana entered the recession making about half of all RVs, now we’re making more than four out of five,” said Governor Mitch Daniels. “That’s what happens when businesses in a tough economy look hard to see which state has the best economic climate. Thanks to Crossroads RV for these jobs and their confidence in Indiana.”
Crossroads RV currently employs more than 600 Hoosiers at its six plants in Topeka and Syracuse. The company plans to begin hiring additional administrative, manufacturing and maintenance associates early next year.
“Crossroads RV joins the growing list of RV manufacturers expanding their operations in the Hoosier State. Earlier this year, Lippert Components Manufacturing and Kinro Manufacturing announced plans to expand their RV production lines at their Goshen and Middlebury locations, creating up to 330 new jobs by 2012. Also, Cruiser RV announced it would grow its operations in LaGrange, adding up to 200 new jobs by 2014.
