Winnebago Industries, Inc. President and CEO Michael Happe said the company has safely resumed operations during the pandemic and been able to meet “tremendous” consumer demand in the past three months.

Happe made the remarks in conjunction with Winnebago’s fourth-quarter and full-year earnings report.

“We added motorized scale through the acquisition of Newmar and continued to grow our RV market share throughout the year by leveraging strong dealer relationships, exciting new products and record consumer interest,” Happe stated.

Happe noted the leadership expansion in the past year, through the Newmar acquisition and the appointment of Huw Bower to lead the Winnebago Outdoors business.

“We have built a strong and growing position in the RV market, and our customers continue to view all our brands as a trusted and safe way to have extraordinary experiences as they travel, live, work, and play in the outdoors,” Happe stated. “I’m incredibly proud of the progress we have made over the last several years expanding Winnebago Industries’ portfolio while simultaneously enhancing the quality of our product lineup and service levels and the profitability we are able to achieve.”

Finally, the CEO had a message to the company’s employees.

“I want to thank all of our Winnebago Industries employees for their resilience and commitment during these unique times and focusing on giving our customers a safe and memorable experience with our products in the outdoors,” Happe stated.
