RV industry veteran Matt Carr plans to finalize the purchase of Eugene, Ore.-based Oregon Motorcoach Center from Bob and Terry Lee by July 1, according to a news release from the company.
The company, which has historically provided RV service, has begun making conversion vans, producing its first unit recently for Mercedes-Benz of Eugene, which was a prototype for mountain bike enthusiasts that included bicycle racks, a 150-PSI air compressor, an electric cooler, a table and bed.
Carr was a production manager at the former Country Coach, where he worked for 23 years before leaving to launch Carr Industries (www-carr-industries.com).
Bob Lee, who founded the original Country Camper/Country Coach motorcoach manufacturing plant in Junction City Ore., launched Oregon Motorcoach Center in 2008 along with his daughter Brenda Lee and son-in-law Pat Mason.
The company provides full service to motorhomes and other recreation vehicles, including house and chassis work, paint & body work. It also offers a robust parts department with thousands of parts in inventory.
Oregon Motorcoach Center currently employs 14 employees. Carr expects to add more employees as the van conversion division grows.
When speaking about the timing of Oregon Motorcoach Center entering the Sprinter and other smaller van and other vehicle conversions market, Carr said: “It is the logical ‘next step’ as many recreation enthusiasts who once shopped for a motorhome with the all the comforts of home and are now interested in a mobile base camp.”
