ELKHART, Ind., March 27, 2013
ELKHART, Ind., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE:
THO) today announced that it has completed the planned move of its corporate
headquarters to Beardsley Avenue along the St. Joseph River in downtown
Elkhart, Indiana. Thor was previously headquartered in Jackson Center, Ohio
and announced the move in January as a strategic decision to be more
accessible and active in the community where a large majority of RVs are
produced and where more than 70% of the Company's operations are located.
The new headquarters building was previously unoccupied and was renovated to
include new design features providing a world-class atmosphere for the
Company. The reuse of this building is a prime example of the recent efforts
being made to revitalize the downtown Elkhart area. The new office will have
the capacity to host a variety of meetings and events with dealers, suppliers,
investors and the broader Elkhart community. Thor's corporate human
resources, finance and accounting, legal and information technology
departments are now housed at the new facility.
Bob Martin, Thor President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "We are
pleased with the smooth transition to our new offices on Beardsley Avenue and
are looking forward to working in close proximity to the majority of our
production facilities as well as our key suppliers. In addition, our new
offices provide us with the flexibility to host events that showcase our RV
and bus products on-site. We believe the investment in our new headquarters
will provide a significant return in the form of more efficient management of
Thor's resources in Elkhart and the surrounding area, as well as even stronger
relationships with our customers and suppliers."
The new address for Thor's corporate headquarters is:
601 East Beardsley Avenue
Elkhart, Indiana 46514-3305
