Thor Industries to Move Corporate HQ to Elkhart, Indiana
Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE: THO) today announced that it will move its corporate headquarters to Elkhart, Indiana from its current location in Jackson Center, Ohio. The Company expects to complete the move in the spring of 2013.
"Given our commitment to the RV industry, we want to be more accessible and active in the community where a large majority of RVs are produced and where more than 70% of our operations are located," said Peter B. Orthwein, Thor Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With so many of Thor's operations located in Elkhart and neighboring LaGrange counties, it makes sense to have our corporate management and support services as close to as many of our operating subsidiaries as possible," he added.
As part of the move, Thor's corporate human resources, finance and accounting, legal and information technology departments, which have been located in Elkhart over the past few years, will move to the Company's new corporate office located on Beardsley Avenue along the St. Joseph River in downtown Elkhart. The new facility is scheduled to be completed and in operation this spring.
