Elkhart Supply Corp. featured on Podcast 189

One of the longest-serving suppliers in the RV industry will soon celebrate its 70th anniversary. Elkhart Supply Corporation, which is also recognized by its abbreviated name ESCO, has been providing plumbing and electrical supplies to virtually all RV manufacturers. The firm also offers wiring for towing connections.

Mark Huggett is the marketing director of the Elkhart-based company and he comes on the show to describe the firm’s products, especially the new PEXLock fittings that makes plumbing connections a breeze.

He also talks about ESCO’s Flair-It Pro and Plus fittings as well as its transfer switches, power cords, breakaway switches and seven-way towing cords.

There are few companies serving the RV industry with the longevity of Elkhart Supply Corporation. ESCO will celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2019 and I’m sure a big celebration will be planned. The company predates most of today’s RV manufacturers.

Companies don’t celebrate 70 years of business unless they have a solid reputation for product quality and customer service. The company could simply rest on the foundation it has built and enjoy its position as a premier supplier to the RV industry.

However, ESCO continues to innovate and look for ways to make it easier for RV manufacturers to build units and RV dealers to repair them. The PEXLock fittings are a prime example of that commitment to the industry.

Most RV owners have probably never heard of Elkhart Supply Corporation, yet nearly every RV manufactured in the Elkhart area has some type of product from ESCO built into the unit – most likely behind the walls or under the floors.
