ElDorado National Kansas Inc. has purchased the bus operations of a California company and will move the assets to its Salina facility. The move will create thirty six new manufacturing jobs in Salina.
ElDorado National Kansas Inc. recently purchased Krystal Enterprises of Brea California, a manufacturer of luxury buses with estimated annual sales in excess of $30,000,000.
"We thank the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce and the Salina Airport" said Jeff Montgomery, President and General
Manager. "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."
Thor Industries is the corporate parent ElDorado National Kansas Inc. and is the world's largest manufacturer of recreation vehicles and a major builder of commercial buses.
