ELKHART — RV manufacturer Thor Industries has completed the move into its new corporate headquarters in downtown Elkhart, the company announced Wednesday through a news release.

The new headquarters, located at 601 E. Beardsley Ave., is a previously unoccupied building that has been renovated to house Thor’s human resources, finance and accounting, legal and information technology departments.

The company was formerly headquartered in Jackson Center, Ohio.

“Our new offices provide us with the flexibility to host events that showcase our RV and bus products on-site,” Bob Martin, Thor president and chief operating officer said in the news release. “We believe the investment in our new headquarters will provide a significant return in the form of more efficient management of Thor’s resources in Elkhart and the surrounding area, as well as even stronger relationships with our customers and suppliers.”

Thor’s subsidiaries, which include Dutchmen, Four Winds and Damon and Breckenridge, combined make Thor the largest manufacturer of RVs in the world. Thor also has manufacturers of ambulances and commercial buses.
