4-17-2018 -- Truma is expanding in Elkhart. The system supplier of heaters, air conditioning systems, hot water generators, maneuvering assistants and gas supply for the recreational vehicles industry purchased 5.04 acres at 13 Harman Drive in Elkhart. The 69-year-old company plans to build its permanent North American headquarters at this site along County Road 6, near County Road 17. The new headquarters is expected to be open in the fall of 2018 and will feature state-of-the-art offices, a warehouse and a customer service center for RV owners. Truma, which gets its name from former president Harry S. Truman, first came to Elkhart in 2013.
“Truma chose to build in Elkhart because we want to show our commitment to the local manufacturers and the RV industry,” said 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.”
