Alliance RV Plans More Manufacturing Growth

Alliance Recreational Vehicles (Alliance RV), a luxury RV manufacturer, announced plans today to continue growing its Elkhart operations. The company plans to create up to 650 new jobs by the end of 2023 and has already hired 75 toward its goal.

"With a thriving tech ecosystem and history of life sciences excellence, Indiana is the perfect place for companies like iA to establish its home base," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "We're excited iA has chosen to grow in Indiana and create hundreds of high-wage jobs for Hoosiers."

Alliance RV, which launched its Elkhart operations in 2019, is investing more than $33 million to grow its state-of-the-art manufacturing campus on Benchmark Dr. in Elkhart. The company, which currently manages three manufacturing and office facilities totaling 254,000 square feet, plans to build and equip two additional 120,000-square-foot production facilities to support increased production of its line of luxury fifth-wheel RVs. Construction for the third and fourth buildings is slated to begin this spring and be complete by December 2021.

Pending approval of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) board of directors, the IEDC will offer Alliance RV LLC up to $9.3 million in conditional tax credits based on the company's plans to create up to 650 jobs by the end of 2023. The IEDC also offered up to $1.7 million in conditional tax credits from the Hoosier Business Investment (HBI) tax credit program based on the company's planned capital investment in Indiana. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired and investments are made. The city of Elkhart approved additional incentives.
