Jayco announces expansion of Middlebury campus, will add 300 jobs
Jayco, a subsidiary of Thor Industries, announced another expansion on its Middlebury campus. Ground breaking on a 237,000 square foot mega-facility will occur at the end of September. The much anticipated expansion will house two new production lines for the Jay Flight brand. The expansion will also maximize efficiencies, increasing production capacity for several other Jayco brands. The new mega-facility will add approximately 300 incremental jobs to the Middlebury campus. The announcement comes on the heels of the addition of 256,000 square feet of production capacity for expanded growth of Jayco's Eagle brand travel trailers and fifth wheels. Production at the first of two 128,000 square foot facilities began in February, while the second 128,000 square foot facility opened this month.
