Thor Motor Coach is centralizing its human resources department at a location on the east side of Elkhart, to increase efficiency and move the human resources department away from a manufacturing space.
This story by Benjamin Horvath originally appeared in The Elkhart Truth.
Thor Chief Marketing Officer Jon Krider said the move will help streamline the human resources department and the process of hiring new employees, handling employees’ insurance plans and training new employees.
Currently, Thor Motor Coach’s human resources department is located at the company’s 604 Middleton Road location, which is also its manufacturing headquarters.
The new human resources facility will be located at 3322 Middlebury Street, located just east of downtown Elkhart.
Krider said the existing building on that property needed some refurbishing, including the replacement of carpet and some fresh paint. He estimates that all human resources employees will be in the facility by the end of the month.
The move comes on the heels of Thor Motor Coach’s expansion in Elkhart County. This summer, the company announced they were expanding operations in Wakarusa, Bristol and Elkhart by year’s end.
That move, which the Truth reported on, will create up to 400 additional jobs.
