MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – Jayco, Inc. announced today that it has relocated its manufacturing operations of its toy hauler travel trailers and fifth wheels to a 55,000-square-foot facility on its main campus in Middlebury.
The toy hauler production line was moved to its own facility to focus on the growth of this segment.
“The increase in our production capacity will allow us to better meet the current demand for our Octane and Seismic toy hauler units,” said Rick Gallmeyer, operations manager.
Company officials said that 30 new jobs have been created, with another 30 expected over the next 12 months. Production in the new plant began last week.
