Thor Offers Up Poland Facility for Ukrainian Relief Efforts
Elkhart-based THOR Industries Inc. (NYSE: THO) is providing temporary use of its facility in Poland, through its subsidiary Erwin Hymer Group, to the Polish Red Cross. The RV manufacturer says the facility is being used to store and distribute emergency relief supplies for Ukrainians amid the Russian invasion.
The facility, located in Nowa Sól, Poland, is being used as a staging center for food, clothing, and medical supplies, among others.
“The World has watched in horror the brutality of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” said Chief Executive Officer Bob Martin. “We have all seen the images of families torn apart, maternity hospitals bombed, and community shelters being targeted. People’s lives are being devastated. Our facility in Poland will become a center of relief to many victims of the war who have sought refuge in Poland. I’m proud to be a part of our fully united team as we proclaim that we stand firmly with the people of Ukraine who are suffering from this terrible war.”
In addition, THOR says it is pledging funds to support the relief effort.
THOR officially became the largest RV maker in the world when it acquired German recreational vehicle manufacturer Erwin Hymer Group SE in 2018. The deal was valued at $2.4 billion.
