Grand Design RV, headquartered in Middlebury, Ind., marked the first half of 2017 with the hiring of its 1,000th employee.
“Our employees are what make this company thrive and are ultimately responsible for our unprecedented growth. It’s such an honor to be able to make a difference in the community and have so many dedicated team members that call Grand Design home,” said Don Clark, president and CEO of Grand Design RV.
Grand Design RV entered the RV market in January of 2013 with its flagship Solitude fifth wheel, quickly followed by the release of the market-leading Reflection fifth wheel and travel trailer lines, and the luxury Momentum toy hauler in July of the same year. The introduction of these new products created a total of 500 jobs in just 15 short months.
The Imagine travel trailer was introduced to the market in July 2015, spurring even more growth and hiring.
In the first half of 2017, Grand Design crested the 1,000th employee mark and is continuing to grow. Strong year-over-year brand growth of nearly 67 percent through February, according to Statistical Surveys, has contributed to accelerated hiring and need for the newly constructed Plant Six that opened its doors for production in late 2016.
“When we founded Grand Design, our goal was to make our company special for our retail customers, Grand Design dealers, suppliers, and our Grand Design team members,” Clark said. “We attribute our exceptional growth to the special relationships we have forged with all of these groups and thank you for making Grand Design such a special company.”
