Lancaster, California-based Lance Campers, an REV Group company, just announced several projects and initiatives that double down on the company’s commitment to offer the highest quality travel trailers and truck campers on the market.
At Lance’s state-of-the-art factory, the eighth C.R. Onsrud Pro Series CNC machine was recently installed. Lance pioneered the use of automated CNC (computer numerical controlled) machines in the recreational vehicle manufacturing industry in the early 2000s and continues to lead in this cutting-edge technology. This investment contributes to the highest possible quality manufacturing processes available by delivering precise, consistent components to the assembly line.
Lance has also implemented REV Group’s company-wide initiative for an aggressive Six Sigma Lean Manufacturing certification program, resulting in numerous benefits and processes in place, which support high quality manufacturing and customer satisfaction. Additional management has also been recruited to lead the quality strategy well into the future.
“These key initiatives ensure Lance continues to “walk the talk” and delivers on their latest marketing campaigns theme of “Quality is Standard Equipment,” states Bob Rogers, Marketing Director, Lance Camper. “These initiatives will help us maintain the highest quality possible in the cutting/manufacturing of our products—both truck campers and travel trailers—sidewalls, roofs and floors. They will also help us maintain or improve the volume of high quality product we produce.”
Lance continues to be the leading manufacturer of truck campers in the industry with the highest number of campers distributed and sold. The company’s catalog includes nine models for short-bed and long-bed trucks including the top-selling Lance 650 for short-bed half-ton trucks and the Lance 1172, a double-slide long-bed model made for one-ton DRW trucks.
Interesting that they think ‘Lance pioneered the use of automated CNC (computer numerical controlled) machines in the recreational vehicle manufacturing industry in the early 2000s’…..As the plant engineer for Safari Motor Coaches from 1993-97, I installed a Schelling CNC 10’x10′ panel saw, Anderson dual spindle tool changing, 6′ x 12’ CNC router and custom designed an SCMI built CNC single end tennoner for building just-in-time 5 piece doors, all in 1996! They are, in fact, way behind the automation power curve….
