THE GOSHEN NEWS

ELKHART — Thor Inc. has made changes in leadership at its Dutchmen RV subsidiary. The company announced that Matt Zimmerman, president of Keystone RV, will assume the additional responsibilities of overseeing Dutchmen RV and Aram Koltookian, formerly general manager at Keystone, will become executive vice president of Dutchmen.

The company said the appointments are expected to result in improved operating efficiencies, product quality and customer support.

“Matt and Aram have played a major role in Keystone RV’s success over the past 14 years,” said Thor Industries President and Chief Operating Officer Bob Martin. “We plan to draw on their ability to lead a well-managed, customer-focused organization as we focus on accelerating Dutchmen’s growth.”

“Dutchmen RV has great momentum right now,” Zimmerman said. “It is our primary focus to keep that going as we strengthen all areas of the business to handle further growth. Dutchmen RV will remain independent and continue to develop and bring to market exciting new Dutchmen-branded products. In addition, Dutchmen will continue to operate with its own sales force, engineering staff, product development team and production facilities. The only changes the Dutchmen dealer should see are improved quality and customer support.”

Dutchmen was established in 1988 and manufactures recreational vehicles under the brands Aspen Trail, Coleman, Denali, Dutchmen, Infinity, Kodiak, Komfort, and Voltage.
