February 1, 2013
ELKHART, Ind. — Drew Industries Incorporated (NYSE: DW), parent company of Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) and Kinro®, Inc., recently completed its previously announced plans to relocate its corporate headquarters from White Plains, N.Y., to Elkhart, and to expand its Indiana manufacturing operations.
At 11 a.m. today, Oct. 2, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, Elkhart Mayor Dick Moore and President of the Goshen City Council Jim McKee will join Jason Lippert, Chief Executive Officer of Drew Industries, LCI and Kinro, at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new corporate headquarters, located at 3501 County Road 6 East in Elkhart. In addition to housing executive, managerial, sales and shared services staff, the facility also houses Kinro’s Indiana-based thermoforming operation.
“Consolidating our corporate functions near our Indiana-based manufacturing operations will result in a greater exchange of ideas and expertise and allow us to better serve our customers,” said Jason Lippert. “We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the state of Indiana, Elkhart County and the cities of Elkhart and Goshen during this process, and we look forward to celebrating the opening of our new corporate headquarters.”
The new facility gives Drew Industries room for growth, with 50,000 square feet of office space and 110,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space.
“This new facility allows us to have our executive team under one roof,” said Drew President Scott Mereness. “Centralizing our management and shared services personnel will improve communications and cultivate our tradition of long-term team building. It also provides a larger home for Kinro’s thermoforming operation with room for continued expansion.”
