General RV: New Wixom Location Announced

General RV Officially Announces the Repurposing of the Old Ford Wixom Plant Site for Their Newest Store and Corporate Offices

WIXOM, MI--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2013) - This morning, General RV announced its future growth plans with a move to the previous Ford Wixom Plant site. While repurposing the former plant's site, General RV will be maintaining current jobs in the Wixom area, and adding roughly 75 new jobs. They will soon become the largest RV retail facility in the Midwest. In a state with so much to offer already, General RV expects the facility to become a draw to bring RV buyers and campers to Michigan, making it the ultimate destination for RVers.

Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014 with 1,200 feet of frontage on I-96. General RV President Loren Baidas, stated, "This move will ensure our customers and employees the best possible experience with RVing."

This relocation will help General RV Center to better service customers and RV enthusiasts with larger showrooms and service areas to meet the needs of the growing RV community. The plans for the new space include an 83,000 square foot facility on 34 acres, nearly three times the size of the current office. General RV's facility will feature 40 bays for service with widened space for RV maneuverability, a spacious showroom and parts store. The corporate offices will be located on the second floor. With recent reports showing the continued growth of RV sales and travel, General RV is eager to create the ideal space for service to enhance customer's experience.
