Over 400 RV Jobs Motoring Cross-Country From Oregon to Indiana
The company expects to invest more than $1 million to bring the additional production to Indiana, according to the Economic Development Corp of Elkhart County (EDCEC). Navistar manufactures RVs under the brand names Holiday Rambler, Monaco Coach, Beaver, Safari, McKenzie and R-Vision. It employs over 250 workers at its Wakarusa plant.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered up to $2.8 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $125,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. EDCEC also kicked in incentives to sweeten the deal.
"This competitive project is tremendous news for the state of Indiana and Elkhart County," said Dorinda Heiden-Guss, president of EDCEC. "The commitment Monaco RV is making to Elkhart County speaks volumes about our county's competitive resources for companies in the transportation manufacturing sector."
