Aug 22, 2022, 10:26 AM
VIXEN COMPOSITES, an AIRXCEL® brand, has officially expanded into a new, larger facility. The move is to house the increased need for capacity for the company’s variety of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP). Marc Brunner, general manager, made the announcement.
Vixen’s new location boasts an expansive 60,000 square foot facility in the Aeroplex Industrial Park with both office space and warehouse facilities on-site. The location, specifically chosen for its centralized location to the RV industry, is situated in the heart of Elkhart, Indiana, adjacent to the Elkhart airport.
“When looking for the new space we specifically looked to stay in Elkhart because we wanted to keep that close connection with our customers in the RV industry,” explained Brunner. “Being in Elkhart now with a larger space allows us to continue to personally serve our customers in a timely manner while also being responsive to the ever-changing needs of the RV industry.”
Since Vixen’s inception in 2010, interest in its FRP and innovative composite panel solutions has steadily expanded in the RV community and specialized markets. The new Elkhart facility provides increased space for product line extensions in Vixen’s family of FRP offerings to support customer demand with expanded capacity.
“We’re incredibly excited to grow Vixen Composites during this pivotal time in the RV industry,” said Brunner. “With Airxcel’s support we’ve been able to invest in growth rather than scaling back ensuring that in the future we’re set up to better meet the needs of our OEM customers and take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.”
