In August of 2009 Fleetwood Enterprises ended their manufacturing operation in Garrett, Indiana. Wally Comer, Walt Fuller and Jerry Henry stepped in and purchased the plant and invested in the startup of Adventure Homes.
So many of the people showed up even without guarantees of pay scales, benefits etc., that we started the line immediately that Monday morning. They signed a new employee application and went to work and we were only 20 minutes late for the continuing line role. These people showed up because they trusted Wally Comer and they trusted the managers and supervisors enough to know that they would be taken care of. That is the culture at Adventure Homes, and is the root of all the current and future success we will ever have.
