Elkhart County a leader in GDP gain
from The Goshen News
Elkhart-Goshen's GDP grew by 11.4 percent in 2012, one of the top gains in the country. Much of the growth was fueled by an increase in manufacturing. Local RV makers, including Keystone RV Co. and Dutchmen Manufacturing Inc., have been rebounding since the recession of 2007, and RV suppliers, including Lippert Components Inc. in Goshen, are all up as well. "When the economy is good, we're leading the parade and when that happens, everything else in Elkhart County responds accordingly," says Chamber of Commerce president David Daugherty. "It's more fun to lead the parade when it comes back. The continued growth should be good for the next couple of years."
