Ritz-Craft Homes Continues to Market Their Modular Homes to a Wide Audience

Ritz-Craft Homes, located in Mifflinburg, PA, presented this modular/system-built home on the show floor at the 2014 Louisville Housing Show in January.

In other news, Ritz-Craft Homes was the only modular home manufacturer with a booth inside the Exhibition Hall at this year's IBS in Las Vegas.

Sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), IBS is billed as one of the largest trade shows in the world. This year, for the first time, IBS, the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and the International Window Coverings Expo all co-located, attracting over 75,000 builders, remodelers and suppliers from across the country and covered over 650,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Through their participation in this show, and continued national-level involvement in multiple areas of the housing industry, Ritz-Craft continues to establish themselves as a leader within the system-built housing industry.

“The involvement of the members of the modular industry at IBS and other builder/consumer shows is paramount to the advancement of modular construction as a preferred method of construction,” remarks Donna Peak of the National Association of Home Builders. “Educational seminars, like the one given by Ritz-Craft’s Mike Zangardi at the Building Systems Councils' Learning Destination headquarters at IBS, give builders a first-hand demonstration of the advantages modular building can bring to their businesses and shows them how easy it can be to incorporate it into their construction portfolios.”
A renewed sense of optimism and confidence in the housing market was evident at the show. After speaking with numerous builders, developers and designers from all over the country, many positive comments were received regarding the housing growth outlook for 2014.

Several Ritz-Craft home builders were in attendance at the show. They too were hopeful about the year ahead and expressed appreciation about Ritz-Craft’s participation in the show.
Dick Burke of DB Homes remarked, “After visiting the modular home outside today at the show, I have to say that Ritz-Craft’s product presentation, finishes and especially design are leaps and bounds above them.”

Ritz-Craft’s participation in national-level shows has been the spark for several innovative ideas over the years. Vaughn Buckley, another Ritz-Craft builder from the Philadelphia area, commented, “It made me proud to know that I am affiliated with a company that thinks big and is willing to make the investment necessary to participate on this national stage. One thing is for sure, Ritz-Craft never stands idle, they are always learning and trying to get better.”
