FOREST CITY, IOWA, September 4, 2018 - Winnebago Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WGO), a leading outdoor lifestyle product manufacturer, today announced that the FCA Commercial Vehicle Team has designated Winnebago Motorhomes as a member of the Ram Quality Professional Program.
As a qualified member of the Q-Pro program, Winnebago is joining a select group of upfitters and body manufacturers dedicated to exceeding customer’s expectations for quality, reliability and dependability. Winnebago is the first RV manufacturer to earn this designation.
To become a qualified member of the Q-Pro Program, FCA engineers evaluated Winnebago’s processes related to quality, regulatory compliance and continuous improvement. This involved an on-site visit by FCA’s team to validate that Winnebago’s processes met and exceeded the criteria in the three evaluation areas.
“At Winnebago, we strive to provide a superior product to our customers by doing things the right way,” said Brian Hazelton, Vice President & General Manager – Motorhome Business. “We work closely with suppliers to maintain the integrity of purchased components in order to ensure quality in the finished product. By following these guidelines, we believe it has allowed us to excel and become the first RV manufacturer to be named a member of the Q-Pro Program. Quality continues to be a priority for us as we work to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations and help create extraordinary experiences in the outdoors.”
Winnebago builds the Travato on the Ram ProMaster chassis. Since its launch in 2014, the Travato has been at the forefront of the campervan revolution. The latest evolution in the Travato lineup is the 59KL and 59GL, which features the Pure3 Energy Management System. This durable and easy-to-use lithium energy system allows RVers to “cut the cord” and replenishes power to the coach through multiple charging options.
