Elkhart, Indiana-based Genesis Products has acquired the Solid Surface division of Native Hardwoods, a manufacturer of hardwood and solid surface products. Genesis said the acquisition will expand its team and double its production capacity of solid surface countertops for the RV market.
Already a major supplier of RV interiors, Genesis is focusing efforts on becoming the No. 1 RV countertop supplier to the RV industry.
“This strategic acquisition will ramp up our production capacity into 2023,” said Jon Wenger, Genesis president and CEO. “It will also add nine team members with extensive experience in solid surface manufacturing and bring on new key accounts.”
Plans are for Native Hardwoods to move its solid surface operations into Genesis’ new plant in Goshen once it is completed sometime this year. Until then it will continue to operate in its facilities in Elkhart.
“After 26 years of providing quality solid surface products, we made the choice to focus more on our core business, which is providing a broad range of quality hardwoods to the luxury RV market,” said Jim Edmundson, Native Hardwoods president and owner. “In Genesis Products we found an organization that has the resources, team, and culture to continue to provide quality solid surface products with a strong customer focus.”
Genesis’ Goshen plant will become its 10th manufacturing facility.
