May 20, 2014

ELKHART, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announced today its Howe, Indiana, plant has custom manufacturing capabilities. In addition to manufactured housing and park model frames, LCI’s Howe Plant produces custom steel shipping racks, stationary racks, toter trailers, skid and drag frames, modular carriers and similar products, and is ready to take new orders.

“Our Howe Plant team has been making its own steel storage racks and tubs and taking on various custom projects from existing customers,” said Chuck Bell, LCI Vice President of Chassis Operations. “Customers come to us with challenges and we work with them to design and build what they need.”

Plant Manager Jeff Holsinger is confident his experienced team can design and build nearly any unique frame, rack or trailer in the 56,000-square-foot plant in Howe. “We just finished manufacturing a custom set of 480-foot reusable shipping skids for a large local manufacturer,” said Holsinger. “We receive a lot of business by word-of-mouth because our customers are vocal about the quality custom work we do.”
