American Technology Components 1127 Miles Ave, Miles campus

Much of the former Miles Laboratories campus sits vacant, but an RV supplier plans to build a new headquarters and manufacturing facility at 1127 Miles Ave.

ELKHART — A vacant section of the old Miles Laboratories campus will be busy once more, as a local RV industry supplier plans to invest $17.6 million in a new facility at the site.

The new tenant at 1127 Miles Ave. will be American Technology Components Inc., which manufactures electronic products for RVs, light trucks, specialty vehicles and boats. The company said it will create 68 positions at its new facility over the next three years, adding to its existing staff of 177.

Great!! It's nice to see a company use an existing available piece of land or facility. We have too many companies building on our prime farm land. Our county commissioners don't seem to care about the farm land at all.
