rv-pro.com December 2018 • RV PRO • 39 By locating the ICIT in Elkhart, Healey says it not only provides a strategic location for its U.S. operation, but puts the com- pany in proximity to its partners, customers and the major brands within the industry. Along with providing space for sales, marketing, engineering, operations, cus- tomer service and backend office support, the $5 million building includes four RV bays, and space for testing and displaying products. It operates on renewable energy. Furrion also has a 12,000-square-foot warranty center near Elkhart. Although Healey prefers to describe it as an opportunity, rather than a challenge, he says the pace of today's technology is dis- rupting the norm, while influencing manu- facturing, product design and engineering. "Consumer behavior is changing in response to these new technologies," he says. "It's vital that we provide them with large and small kitchen appliances that seamlessly integrate into their lives and add value to the process." However, Healey believes Furrion is up to the task. In three to five years, he sees consumers immersed in Furrion's range of superior products. "At every touchpoint we'd like con- sumers using a Furrion product – TVs, fireplaces, ovens, ranges, cooktops, micro- waves, dishwashers," he says. "We're having more and more conversations with our innovation teams and customers in rela- tion to integrating smart technology into our suite of solutions. There are some really exciting initiatives in the pipeline." www.strombergcarlson.com Keep your trailer connections clean for better performance.
