Truma, a leading European supplier of RV comfort systems for almost 70 years, has purchased five acres of land to build a permanent headquarters in North America, according to the company. The new building will be in Elkhart, Indiana, on County Road 6 in Remington Park.
Since August of 2013, Truma has been doing business in Elkhart in a two-story Victorian style office building on Jackson Boulevard.
"Truma chose to build in Elkhart because we want to show our commitment to the local manufacturers and the RV industry,” says Gerhard Hundsberger, president and CEO of Truma North America. "RV manufacturers, dealers and RV owners love Truma products, which has resulted in tremendous growth for us. We are excited to expand to a larger location with more space, so we can hire additional staff and continue to bring innovative products and services to the North American RV industry."
Truma's new headquarters will include state-of-the-art offices, a warehouse and a customer service center for RV owners. The company plans to open its new headquarters this fall. For more information about Truma and its products visit www.truma.net or call 855-558-7862.
