Northwood Manufacturing Adds Alaska Dealer Valley RV Center, Inc.
La Grande, OR based RV builder Northwood Manufacturing is pleased to announce Palmer, AK dealer Valley RV Center, Inc. as the newest member of their expanding dealer network. Northwood COO, Ward King stated that "This is such a great fit for us and for Valley RV Center. Northwood enjoys a very strong market share in Canada due to our reputation for durable, all-weather construction. It makes sense that these product attributes make Northwood a perfect choice for the Alaskan RV'er. We are looking forward to a long term relationship with this quality dealership."
Operating in the Anchorage, AK market, Wayne Boitz, owner of Valley RV Center, Inc., was excited about the opportunity to join forces with Oregon's Northwood. "Northwood products are very desirable but the dealers who carry them won't part with them. We jumped at the opportunity to grab their new brands. We will be representing the new Wolf Creek camper line as well as the Fox Mountain half-ton fifth wheel line and the Snow River travel trailer and fifth wheel products. Northwood enjoys a great reputation for quality and that makes their products an easy sell."
Jim Jones, Northwood's CEO added, "We are excited about the opportunity to expand our presense in Alaska with Valley RV Center which has been operating for 15 years. We are so grateful that the RV consumer continues to recognize and demand the value that Northwood products provide. We believe that is why representing Northwood products is a wise business proposition for any RV dealer."
"Our new brands are already beginning to gain traction. We believe they will soon enjoy the same owner satisfaction and referral rate we enjoy with our established brands" added Northwood's National Sales Director, Donald Cochran. "It is the repeat and referral business that has kept our dealer network strong in spite of the modest market. Northwood Manufacturing is always willing to partner with RV dealers who want to align themselves with our quality products and services."
