(MARION ) - Earthbound RV has started production and hiring at its new manufacturing facility in Marion.
The company currently has about 15 employees and hopes to hire 70 full-time workers within the year. In February, Earthbound RV announced it was relocating from Elkhart County and creating up to 300 new jobs by 2013.
The company reportedly has a $2-million sales backlog. Earthbound RV is building eco-friendly towable recreational vehicles. The production line is about 65 percent complete.
In the last two and a half weeks, Earthbound says it has added six new dealers to its list. That brings its national dealer distribution network to 36.
