Texas continues to be a hot market for manufactured housing, with plenty of new homebuyers flowing into the state, and Skyline Champion Corporation has increased its presence in the Lone Star State with a new manufacturing facility in Navasota.
The 270,000 square-foot plant located in southeast Texas was acquired in June and the operation has been retooled. Hiring is underway, and the first production line will be operational this year. We anticipate opening a second line as the supply chain allows, while eventually growing the total operation to over 250 employees, becoming one of the largest employers in Navasota.
“We’re seeking employees looking to build a career with us… long-term team members that want to be a part of the Champion Homes family,” General Manager Scott Isom said.
Skyline Champion Corporation is the largest independent, publicly traded, factory-built housing company in North America and employs approximately 7,900 people. It operates 40 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and western Canada.
In addition to building homes, the company operates a factory-direct retail business, Titan Factory Direct, with 18 retail locations spanning the southern United States, and Star Fleet Trucking, providing transportation services to the manufactured housing and other industries from several dispatch locations across the United States.
