JACKSON CENTER, Ohio (AP) - The company that makes the iconic silver Airstream travel-trailers at a western Ohio factory is announcing a $5.9 million expansion.

The Dayton Daily News (https://bit.ly/YFXjXF ) reports that Thor Industries announced the expansion on Monday for its Airstream subsidiary in Jackson Center, about 55 miles north of Dayton.

The project will increase the facility’s production and office capacity by 70 percent. The company did not say how many jobs will be added.

Airstream president Bob Wheeler says the expansion is necessary because of strong growth in the market and positive outlook for the future. The plant, which has been building Airstream trailers since 1952, reached capacity this year.

The addition is expected to be completed by May.
