Pilgrim RV Celebrates Fifth Year and 35,000 Fifth Wheels & Travel Trailers
During this time the company has grown from one to three manufacturing facilities in Middlebury, Indiana. It has up-fitted and equipped its facilities with the latest in vacuum-bonded lamination processes to bring the highest quality products to market. Pilgrim also continues to lead the RV industry in innovations such as its TuffGloss technology--a high-performance, gel-coat composite lamination technology that replaces Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP).
The Louisville RVIA Show in November of 2006 was a major benchmark of both dealer acceptance and sales success for the company. Pilgrim International sold over 2,000 units at the show. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Jerry Sell, elaborated, ���We more than tripled our successes from the previous year���which was our best year yet. This was an exceptional year. We had anticipated having a strong show, but the dealer response was almost overwhelming.���
The entire Pilgrim International team understands innovation is the key to future success.
���We���re headed in the direction to utilize composite materials. We���re not going to be the only ones out there, but today, fortunately, we have a scientific group that is working with our industry to bring our products to a much higher level of attention by those in the composite industry. We���re always going to strive to be the innovators. Whether we will be the most innovative, I���m not sure, but we���re going out there with the best in the industry,��� Dave Hoefer, Founder and Chairmen of Pilgrim International concluded.
