Optronics expands with new Indiana facility

Optronics International announces its expansion and relocation to a large new facility in Goshen, Ind. The geographic move from nearby Elkhart, Ind., puts Optronics in close physical proximity to many of the RV and trailer manufacturers it serves, while substantially boosting its capabilities and distribution capacity in North America’s eastern region, the company says.

“The new Goshen facility significantly expands our distribution reach, speed and efficiency,” says Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics. “Our already short lead times will become even shorter, reducing customers’ exposure to out-of-stock situations and enhancing service to the eastern U.S.”

Optronics’ diverse locations help it serve an equally diverse customer base, including heavy-duty vehicles of all types; light-, medium- and heavy-duty trailers; recreational vehicles; transit vehicles and a variety of agricultural and marine vehicles, the company says.

“We have North America covered and then some,” Johnson says. “With Goshen coming online, we are particularly well positioned to continue to handle the double-digit growth we’ve been enjoying, and our capacity to take customer spikes in manufacturing and retail sales in stride has never been better.”
