Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Gov. Mike Pence says a new recreational vehicle manufacturer plans to create 500 jobs in northern Indiana by 2016.

Pence joined executives of Grand Design RV in Middlebury on Thursday as the company announce plans to locate its headquarters and manufacturing operations in the Elkhart County town about 30 miles east of South Bend.

Grand Design already employs 115 employees in Middlebury. RV industry veterans began the company late last year.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered the company up to $2.85 in performance-based tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans.

RV components producer Drew Industries Inc. announced last week it would create up to 800 new jobs in Elkhart County by 2017.
