BROOMFIELD, Colo. — In a recent interview with RV Pro, Thor Industries founder Peter Orthwein, 70, recaps some of the highlights in the company’s history, including Thor’s recent blockbuster purchase of Jayco for $576 million to give it an approximate 47 percent market share of the RV industry.
Orthwein stresses that Thor is not done growing. Throughout its history, Thor has acquired several companies, and as opportunities arise in the future, the RV maker will evaluate them, just as it has in the past, he told the publication.
The Jayco purchase illustrates Thor’s confidence in the future of the RV industry as large numbers of younger consumers enter and expand the market over the coming decades, he explained.
