Dutchmen Mfg. will expand operations into Syracuse, Ind., with 110,000 square feet of additional production space, according to Troy James, VP of sales for Dutchmen.

“We’ve made some major changes over the past 12 months at Dutchmen, and it’s really starting to pay off. Our PDIs are as tight as they’ve ever been, dealers are loving our product lines and product enhancements, and we continue to see increased demand from customers for each of our brands,” James said. “A move into this facility not only broadens our capacity, but because it’s so clean and is very similar to our other plants, we will be able get it up and going very quickly. That’s important as we work hard to continue to capitalize on the strong demand we are experiencing.”

The company expects to employ 120 people at the new Syracuse facility after production begins in October of this year. James says the skilled labor pool in Syracuse was an additional benefit of the move into the community.

“The labor force in Syracuse is experienced and skilled in the construction of RVs. They understand what it takes, and we’re very much looking forward to being part of the community and benefitting from the impressive work ethic there,” James said.

The Syracuse plant will be the sixth production facility out of which Dutchmen operates. The company currently builds travel trailers and fifth wheels at facilities in Goshen and Middlebury, Ind., as well as Pendleton, Ore.

Dutchmen Manufacturing was founded in 1988 and today builds the Aerolite, Aspen Trail, Coleman, Denali, Kodiak, Razorback, Rubicon, andVoltage travel trailer and fifth wheel brands.
