A company from Michigan is moving a new facility to Navasota.
Skyline Champion, a home builder out of Detroit, announced Wednesday that they are opening a new home building facility in town, which they acquired in June. The press release said they expect first production lines to be operational this year.
Skyline said as well they anticipate opening a second line, which would grow their operation to over 250 employees, becoming one of the largest employers in Navasota.
Skyline Champion Corporation (NYSE: SKY) is the largest independent, publicly traded, factory-built housing company in North America and employs approximately 7,900 people. With almost 70 years of homebuilding experience and 40 manufacturing facilities throughout the United States and western Canada, Skyline Champion is well positioned with a leading portfolio of manufactured and modular homes, ADUs, park-models and modular buildings for the single-family, multi-family, and hospitality sectors.
In addition to its core home building business, Skyline Champion operates a factory-direct retail business, Titan Factory Direct, with 18 retail locations spanning the southern United States, and Star Fleet Trucking, providing transportation services to the manufactured housing and other industries from several dispatch locations across the United States.
General Manager of Skyline Scott Isom said “Skyline Champion is thrilled to be in Navasota and we are making a long-term commitment here. We’re seeking employees looking to build a career with us; long-term team members that want to be a part of the Champion Homes family.”
