MIDDLEBURY — Due to unprecedented growth in the Jayco towable division, Jayco, Inc. is announced this week another expansion on their 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 travel trailer. The expansion will also maximize efficiencies, increasing production capacity for several other Jayco brands, according to a press release provided by the company.

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 sq. ft. 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.

“We’re seeing unprecedented growth in the RV industry,” said Matt Thompson, Jayco’s Chief Operating Officer. “Jayco is actively seeking ways to meet consumer demand within, and outside of, Elkhart County.”
