UNION CITY, Ind., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Workhorse Custom Chassis marked a major milestone Wednesday as it celebrated the 100,000th chassis to come off its production line since it began operations in 1999.

In that time, Workhorse has become the leading manufacturer of Class A (bus-style) motor home chassis. According to 2004 R.L. Polk data of new vehicle registrations, the top ten RV dealers in the United States ordered 79 percent of their Class A gas motor home inventory on Workhorse chassis.

Workhorse achieved this status by introducing dramatic innovations to improve the power, performance, ride, handling and overall appeal of new motor homes. Thanks to Workhorse, the rapidly growing RV market now has more choices than ever to offer new buyers.

Workhorse has also led the way in innovations for walk-in trucks, such as its new W42 commercial chassis, and in streamlining the walk-in truck ordering process. Workhorse's integrated vehicle approach to providing both body and chassis through a single order has been welcomed by customers and by dealers. Workhorse's FasTrack program, for example, allows dealers to quickly order standard walk-in models just as they can order any other vehicle, making it easier for businesses to take advantage of the vehicle's versatility.

Recently Workhorse extended its innovation to the mid-sized bus market with the introduction of the LF72 -- a unique low-floor bus platform that eliminates steps with easy ramp-on access. This is a boon for those with disabilities or limited mobility.

Joining Workhorse in its 100,000th chassis celebration were two of its biggest customers, Winnebago Industries Inc., a major motor home manufacturer, and Bimbo Bakeries USA, one of the nation's largest bakers.

"We're very glad to have two of our good customers with us on this occasion," said Workhorse President David Olsen. "Because we're solely focused on these particular niches, we're able to stay on the leading edge of innovations that directly respond to what they need."

Also celebrating with Workhorse are a number of government officials who have worked with the company to develop this thriving manufacturing concern, bringing 400 jobs to the Union City area over the past six years. "We have a great workforce and we really appreciate the support from the community," said Olsen.
