Cavco Industries has purchased a newly constructed building in Glendale, Ariz., for the production of park models, RVs, cabins, and cottages.
The final buildout at the facility continues through the year, and Cavco expects new park model production in Glendale to begin in late 2021 or early 2022. The new production facility will create 200 new jobs in the area.
All of the new models made in the 118,000 square-foot-facility will be built under American National Standards Institute “ANSI” standards. Each of the models is a seasonal dwelling typically used in resorts and other properties in the outdoor hospitality industry.
New Facility Also Increases Volume for Manufactured Homes
Cavco Industries President and CEO Bill Boor said the Glendale facility improves operating efficiencies and output in the RV lines, allowing the company to expand regional production. The move also provides the opportunity to revert one of the two lines at Cavco’s Goodyear, Ariz., from park model production to a full focus on HUD code manufactured homes.
“Not only will it allow us to better serve our park model customers with a dedicated facility, but it will also create additional capacity for HUD code homes at our Goodyear factory to serve the Southwest region of the U.S,” Boor said.
Cavco Industries is a home builder and national supplier of manufactured homes and modular homes.
Tim Gage is national vice president of the park models and specialty product division with Cavco.
“The new facility will feature state-of-the-art production processes and full-factory air conditioning, creating a highly efficient and employee-friendly workplace,” Gage said. “Cavco has a long history of developing innovative products and close customer relationships in the park model market. With the transition into the new, dedicated Glendale facility, we will be able to take those customer relationships to a new level.”
