REV Group, a manufacturer of RVs and other specialty vehicles, has suspended production at all four of its RV production facilities. The suspension took effect this week at plants in Indiana and California.
RV manufacturers under the REV Group umbrella include American Coach, Fleetwood RV, Monaco Coach, Holiday Rambler, Renegade RV, Midwest Automotive Design and Lance Camper.
The impacted businesses will continue to monitor local health and safety mandates, the supply chain and dealer demand to determine when to restart normal operations. The company’s service centers will continue to perform essential support to meet dealers’ and end customers’ technical, warranty and parts requests.
REV Group continues to produce vehicles deemed essential, such as fire trucks and ambulances.
“While we have suspended normal RV production, most of the vehicles we produce are considered by the Department of Homeland Security as essential to the nation’s health and safety, as well as critical to transportation infrastructure,” new REV Group CEO Rod Rushing said. “In order to deliver against existing backlogs and inbound orders and support our nation’s first responders during this challenging time, we are currently maintaining a regular work schedule at our non-RV production facilities.”
The safety of employees is the company’s top priority, Rushing said.
“We have implemented increased safety procedures to limit potential employee exposure to COVID-19 at all of our businesses,” he said, “including flexible scheduling, frequent and enhanced cleaning and sanitation, limited movement of employees between facilities, restricted visitation to our plants and virtual inspections.”
