WORTHINGTON, Minn. — It’s the busiest time of the year for Highland Manufacturing, as peak selling season is still underway.
And it’s about to get busier. On Oct. 16, the Worthington-based modular home builder will shift its production almost entirely to building houses for victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, according to a story by The Globe.
Daryl Muzio, general manager at Highland Manufacturing, got the call Aug. 27 after Harvey hit. He was told that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had put out a request for 4,500 housing units, and by the following Friday, Muzio had already agreed to build more than 150 units.
