Airstream to Ramp Up Production by 50%

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Airstream Inc. has announced that it has increased its production by 25% since October in
order to meet growing market demand. In addition, the company is scheduled to expand
production by another 25% in January, according to a news release. Airstream’s production
backlog has also more than tripled since last year. As a result, Airstream will expand its
production workforce by 35% to support the boost in production and demand. Despite the
adverse economic climate in the RV industry over the last 18 months, Airstream’s recent
performance may indicate a turnaround for the industry as a whole. “Like any other
industry, ours took a significant hit over the last couple of years,” said Bob Wheeler, CEO
of Airstream. “As difficult as it was to streamline our operations during this period, we
now feel optimistic that Airstream is back on the road to recovery.” Wheeler also noted
that dealer confidence for the upcoming selling season appears to be strong and that
lenders seem more willing to provide commercial credit to the industry as a whole. Story
