ElDorado National moves new operations to Kansas

ElDorado National Kansas Inc. has purchased the bus operations of a California company and will move the assets to its Salina facility, the Kansas Department of Commerce and Salina Area Chamber of Commerce announced. The move will create 36 new manufacturing jobs in Salina.

ElDorado National recently purchased Krystal Enterprises of Brea, Calif., a manufacturer of luxury buses with estimated annual sales in excess of $30 million.

“We are pleased to welcome more premium wage manufacturing jobs to the Salina Airport Industrial Center,” said Tim Rogers, executive director of the Salina Airport Authority.

The new luxury buses will complement the Aerolite, Aerotech, Aero Elite and Advantage buses already made at Eldorado National’s Salina facility, located at 1655 Wall Street in the Salina Airport Industrial Center.

“We thank the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce and the Salina Airport,” said Jeff Montgomery, president and general manager of ElDorado National Kansas. “The airport is a great operating location. The chamber helped us to understand how the Kansas Department of Commerce programs can support a decision to add jobs in Salina.”

“I’m excited that ElDorado National is expanding and creating good new jobs in the state,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “Eldorado has had a manufacturing presence in Kansas for more than three decades. It’s terrific to see a company with a long history here continue to grow, employ more Kansans and contribute to our economic growth.”

Dennis Lauver, president and CEO of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce said, “The high quality workforce in Salina has made it easy for the corporate leadership to add jobs here. They know they get quality workmanship from the talent in Salina.”

Thor Industries is the corporate parent of ElDorado National Kansas, and is the world’s largest manufacturer of recreation vehicles and a major builder of commercial buses.
