FOREST CITY, Iowa, July 19, 2013 – Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading U.S. manufacturer of recreation vehicles, has been named a Gold Award recipient from Detroit Chassis’ Recycling Program.

Detroit Chassis issued a recycling challenge to recognize the body builders with the highest percentage of recycled materials returned for reuse for the period July 2012 to March 2013. Items considered for the recycling challenge included Temp Seats, Engine Covers, Steering Covers, Dunnage Boxes, Yellow Mesh Covers, Blue and Yellow Caps, F59 Dash Panel Brackets Floor Panel Supports.
