Thor Industries acquires Elkhart Composites

December 8, 2021

RV industry giant Thor Industries has announced the acquisition of premium producer of polypropylene-based composite materials Elkhart Composites. The acquisition will be completed via Thor’s Airxcel Inc subsidiary.

Elkhart Composites is a well-known name in the RV industry and a strong developer and producer of proprietary sustainable foamed polypropylene-based composite materials marketed and sold under the Elkboard brand name. Lightweight, rigid, and durable, Elkboard is used in the RV industry for sidewalls, helping to alleviate the industry’s dependence on traditional lauan-based sidewalls. Unlike traditional lauan-based sidewalls, Elkboard is a sustainable solution and is not susceptible to rot or delamination. Camping Trade World
