Shield of Protection Motorhome Owner Protection Program by Thor Motor Coach

Thor Motor Coach, has expanded their industry leading “SHIELD OF PROTECTION” customer service program.  Thor Motor Coach’s Shield of Protection support now includes “SINGLE SOURCE” warranty facilitation service.

To provide a simple, quick, and easy interaction, dealers and owners will no longer need to contact individual component part manufacturers to receive pre-authorization for warranty repairs on Thor Motor Coach branded motorhomes.  Thor Motor Coach now facilitates the warranty claims on behalf of the dealer and retail owners, allowing a “SINGLE SOURCE” of contact to work with the motorhome’s component part manufacturers.

“We are continually monitoring our dealers and consumers to find out what they really desire.  A consolidated, single source warranty program is what dealers and retail owners want.  It is in Thor Motor Coach’s best interest to facilitate this warranty authorization with our valued industry partners. ”, commented Nicole Short, Director of Customer Service.

The new “SINGLE SOURCE” program started August 1, 2013.  For full details on the program, and how Thor Motor Coach can save time and frustration by helping facilitate the warranty authorizations with component manufacturers, please call 877-500-1020.

Thor Industries LogoThor Industries, Inc. announced expansion plans to support the ongoing growth of its businesses. Thor Wakarusa LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Thor Industries, purchased the recreational vehicle (RV) production campus in Wakarusa, Indiana that was formerly operated by Navistar International Corporation. The land and production facilities, including certain related equipment, are to be purchased from a company owned by New York-based American Industrial Partners (AIP).

Bob Martin, Thor President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, “This purchase marks an important step forward in the growth of our RV business. With this new production complex, we will be better positioned to achieve our long-term strategic growth initiatives. Even more compelling, this purchase will allow us to expand capacity faster and at a lower cost than other options. We are excited about the future prospects of reinvigorating the Wakarusa facilities.”

The purchased facilities are comprised of nearly one million square feet of total production space located on more than 150 acres located in Wakarusa, Indiana. In addition to the production space, the complex includes more than 35 paint booths designed specifically for painting recreational vehicles. Initially, Thor plans to use the facilities for motorized production to better enable Thor Motor Coach to meet current and expected demand, and to vertically integrate paint operations through a facility operated by Thor’s Keystone subsidiary. The facility includes space that offers the potential for additional production as well. Thor expects to finalize transition planning once the seller exits the facilities which is expected to occur late this summer.
