The new owner of a northern Indiana recreational vehicle factory that suddenly closed last week plans to reopen it in the coming months.

Thor Industries announced Tuesday it was buying the Elkhart factory from Monaco RV.

Monaco's Florida-based parent company closed the factory without notice on Feb. 10, ending the jobs of about 85 workers and turning away those who arrived for work in the morning.

The president of Elkhart-based Thor says he expects production of motorhomes at the factory this spring or summer. Bob Martin tells the South Bend Tribune that Thor will consider hiring those who worked for Monaco.

Thor spokesman Jeff Tryka tells The Elkhart Truth modifications will be needed at the factory where Monaco had made towable RVs.
