Erwin Hymer Group North America, Inc. welcomed more than 100 Hymer sales and service personnel to its new manufacturing facility in Cambridge, Ontario last week to introduce new products, review existing product and technologies and learn directly from suppliers about featured items offered in the Hymer brand of products. They also enjoyed some social time with the company staff and met leaders from all areas of the business.

“We enjoyed the training course and factory tour that Erwin Hymer Group put on for all their Hymer dealers,” LaMesa RV Regional Sales Manager Jim Eberhardt says. "It was well organized by a great group of experienced professionals and we all came away feeling excited by the new products that the company currently has available and those that are coming out soon. Erwin Hymer Group is setting the standard for the class B market and breaking new ground for the entire RV industry for years to come.”

The company is rapidly expanding its dealer and service networks for the Hymer brand to be able to accommodate the huge growth it has gone through since it was acquired more than a year ago by the Erwin Hymer Group in Germany.

“This was our first training event for the Hymer brand and we are thrilled with the participation from our sales and service personnel and the success of the event,” Erwin Hymer Group Vice President of Sales & Service Mike Snell says. "We have a very strong network of dealers who are excited for what’s ahead with the Hymer brand and we know their time is valuable. Everyone who participated in the event saw the opportunity in front of them and looked at it as an investment into our company. We couldn’t ask for more and having them all here means a great deal to us.”
