Newmar Corp. notified some staff of layoffs on the evening of Friday, Feb. 28. In a reportedly inaccurate news broadcast by WSBT TV, a South Bend, Indiana, CBS affiliate, approximately 10 percent of its Nappanee, Indiana-based workforce was let go.
Newmar Corp. President Matt Miller told RV News the initial report of layoffs was “vastly overstated.”
“It was a minor adjustment, which we do from time to time to manage our business,” Miller said. “It was nothing outside of normal operations to ensure we are running our business efficiently.”
Company officials says is constantly monitors its workforce and product demand and makes adjustments as needed to remain competitive.
Newmar Corp., a manufacturer of type A and Super C coaches, was acquired by Winnebago Industries on Nov. 8, 2019. Company officials did not confirm how many people are employed at its Nappanee operation.
