Twin Falls Jayco Plant Remains Unchanged After Thor Acquisition

Mon Aug 15, 2016

TWIN FALLS, Idaho — Day-to-day operations at the Twin Falls Jayco plant aren’t likely to change much following the company’s $576 million acquisition by Thor Industries, company officials say.

Jayco, which offers travel trailers, folding camping trailers, higher-end diesel Type A motorhomes and larger Type C motorhomes, will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Thor, another recreational-vehicle giant, and Jayco’s existing senior management team will continue to lead the business.

Subsidiaries Jayco, Starcraft RV, Highland Ridge and Entegra Coach, operate in 31 facilities, which include 17 production lines covering 2.2 million square feet of production space, primarily in Indiana with additional facilities in Twin Falls.
