Vixen Composites has moved into a new, larger facility in Elkhart, Ind.
Company officials said in a news release that the new location can handle additional capacity for Elkhart-based Vixen's fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP). The new location covers 60,000 square feet, with both office space and warehouse facilities.
The location was chosen for its centralized location to the RV industry, which has many companies with facilities in Elkhart.
"When looking for the new space … we wanted to keep that close connection with our customers in the RV industry," General Manager Mark Brunner said. "Being in Elkhart now with a larger space allows us to continue to personally serve our customers … while also being responsive to the ever-changing needs of the RV industry."
Vixen was founded in 2010 and has been owned by RV products supplier Airxcel Inc. of Wichita, Kan., since 2016. Interest in Vixen's FRP and composite panel solutions has steadily expanded in the RV community and specialized markets, officials said.
"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," Brunner said.
