No Slowing Down Ritz Craft Homes

After announcing the reopening of a dormant home manufacturing facility at summer’s end, the first home built out of Ritz-Craft Home’s newly renovated Plant 2 came off of the production line last week.

The Plant 2 team from Ritz-Craft, Mifflinburg, is shown in front of half of the first house to roll out of the rejuvenated facility.
“Ever since the day we had to close Plant 2, we have been working on a plan to reopen the facility and bring people back to work,” said Paul John, Ritz-Craft’s co-owner, president and CEO.
“The timing of all of this will help make the holiday season brighter for a lot of Ritz-Craft families.”

The quaint, one-story home, which features one bedroom, one and one half bathrooms and 1,000 square feet of living space, is headed for a new retirement community in Galloway, N.J.
“The smell of sawdust and the sound of nail guns are so much better than the previous seven years of nothing but quiet and moth balls,” said Eric John, Ritz-Craft co-owner and vice president. “It was an awesome feeling to watch that first home roll out the door.”

Ritz-Craft, a family owned company, is celebrating its 60th year in business in 2014 and remains one of the few privately owned modular home manufacturers in the United States.

With headquarters in Mifflinburg, Ritz-Craft’s roots in residential home building date three generations to 1954. The company has additional production facilities in Michigan and North Carolina.
