Champion Home Builders to Open Second Plant in Lake City, FL

Champion Home Builders to Open Second Plant in Lake City, FL to Meet Growing Demand Redman Homes returns to the Southeast

Premier Showing @ Southeast Community Owners Symposium October 8-10

TROY, Mich.,  – Champion Home Builders, Inc., the nation’s leading producer of modular and manufactured homes and commercial buildings, based in Troy, Mich. announced today that it will be opening a second home manufacturing facility located on their current campus in Lake City, FL.  The new plant will reestablish the Redman brand in the southeast as the housing market continues to recover. Redman has a long-established and well-regarded history in the Southeast with manufacturing facilities that were located in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and North Carolina.   

The Riverview series will be the initial product offering from the new Redman facility and will target homebuyers seeking cost-effective housing options in manufactured housing communities.   “There is currently a lack of pre-owned homes for sale inside Florida communities and many communities throughout the Southeast. Many new homes are simply too expensive for some budgets.  Through value-engineering and a focus on high-efficiency manufacturing, we feel we can offer these buyers a new home at or near the cost of a pre-owned home,” said Wade Lyall, South Region Vice President, Champion Home Builders.

The Riverview will be on display at the upcoming Southeast Community Owners Symposium in Forsyth, GA to be held October 8th through the 10th.  “We are pleased to showcase the new Riverside at this exciting event.  Community owners are a growing market sector and this symposium will attract a wide attendance from across the Southeast.  This is a perfect opportunity for us to launch the Redman Riverview series,” said Byron Stroud, Sales Manager for Champion Homes in Florida.
