ELKHART, Ind. - Thor Industries has bought Monaco RV’s former Elkhart plant, and plans to build motor-homes there.

Monaco RV laid off more than 85 full time workers suddenly just over a week ago, when its parent company decided to close the factory's doors.

A Thor spokesperson says they are open to interviewing former Monaco employees, but those workers will not have any additional advantage against anyone else.

Thor plans to start production at the plant by July 31.

Thor also purchased Monaco’s Wakarusa plant after it closed last year.
