RV parts maker to move to N. Ind., create 800 jobs

ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — Northern Indiana's recreational vehicle industry is getting a boost with the relocation of RV components producer Drew Industries Inc. to Elkhart and the creation of up to 800 new jobs by 2017.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. announced Tuesday night that Drew would relocate its headquarters from White Plains, N.Y., and expand manufacturing its current manufacturing operations in Elkhart County. The parent company of Elkhart County-based Lippert Components Inc. and Kinro Inc. plans to invest $12.75 million to renovate and equip four plants in Goshen and Elkhart.

The agency says it offered Drew up to $4.3 million in conditional, performance-based tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on the company's job-creation plans. It says the cities of Elkhart and Goshen will consider property tax abatements.
