Indiana manufactures 80 percent of RVs sold in the US, and the number is about to go up.
Alliance Recreational Vehicles, a luxury RV manufacturer, is planning a huge expansion in Northern Indiana, building another 120,000 square feet of office facilities and hiring 650 new workers.
Alliance was heavily recruited by several entities, including the Indiana Economic Development Corp. As a result, the firm will see up to $11 million in incentives for its ~$30 million investment.
Reported by the Chicago Tribune:
Alliance Recreational Vehicles said it will invest $33 million to expand its Elkhart campus, which opened in 2009 in the city about 100 miles east of Chicago. The company plans to create up to 650 new jobs by the end of 2023, and said it has already hired 75 new workers.
If Alliance RV reaches its job creation goal, it will receive up to $9.3 million in tax credits, pending the approval of the Indiana Economic Development Corp.
The IEDC, which oversees Indiana’s business recruitment efforts, has also offered the company up to $1.7 million in additional tax credits, while the city of Elkhart has also approved incentives.
