One of Indiana’s leading dealers of motor homes, luxury motor homes and fifth wheels is Newmar Corp. The company’s products were made by RV people, for RV people. Hundreds of Hoosiers rely on Newmar Corp. for their RV needs year after year.
In 1968, Marvin Newcomer and Marvin Miller founded Newmar Corp., after terminating their employment at a different RV company. Later that year, Freemon Borkholder bought in, and the trio set out to change the way recreational vehicles were made and distributed. In the 1970s they became one of the largest and frist fifth wheel manufacturers.
Mahlon Miller is the sole owner of the company today. Newmar Corp. moved to a brand new state-of-the-art facility in 1992. Full paint exterior graphics became a service offered in the late 1990s. The business features a comprehensive and interactive Web site that hosts several informational videos. To help customers understand the products they’re purchasing, the Web site also offers free brochures and other information to educate people about their products.
Beginning in 1985, new owners of Newmar RVs are invited to an exclusive social club. The Kountry Klub now has more than 5,000 members that are considered a part of the Newmar Corp. family. The Kountry Klub has been known to host community events and benefits. For example, in light of the hard economic situation in Elkhart, Indiana in 2009, the Klub held a fundraiser.
The company was founded upon strong Christian values, and this standard is a part of the business model today. The mission statement of the Newmar Corp. expresses the company’s deep connection with the Mennonite faith.
Rapid growth is something the Newmar Corp. is accustomed to. The business began with six employees and expanded to employ more than 1000 people today. In 1990, Newmar presented the world’s first motorhome power slideout, making a name for themselves in the industry. In recent years the company has accomplished the development of a new air conditioning system within its RVs, called the Total Comfort Air Conditioning. This advancement in technology set a standard in RVs today.
This RV company promises the Newmar difference, which ensures Amish craftmanship, ultimate comfort and Total Comfort Air Conditioning, their unique Comfort Drive Steering system and their Full Paint Masterpiece Finish with every Newmar Corp. product.
Newmar Corp. guarantees the finest RV flooring, unique hand-built cabinetry, the strongers sidewalls and roofs, and functional and comfortable interiors and exteriors.
