Ritz-Craft to Display Modular Home at Louisville Manufactured Housing Show

Louisville, KY

JONESVILLE MI: Ritz-Craft Corporation of Michigan will participate in the 2013 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show from January 23-25 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

Ritz-Craft, located at space number 39, will be among an elite group of manufacturers at the show exhibiting a 1680 sq. ft. system-built home. The three bedroom, two bath ranch style plan, known as “The Thoroughbred,” showcases several of Ritz-Craft’s innovative options.

“We’re happy to have Ritz-Craft participating in the show again after a short absence,” remarks Dennis Hill, show coordinator. “They have always been known for excellent quality and I am excited to see what they have to offer our attendees. We enjoy having quality manufacturers like Ritz-Craft in the show to communicate what can be attained with system-building technology.”

Among the innovations found in The Thoroughbred, the master bath features three custom designs, including a new “Infinity” walk-in shower and several custom cabinet designs. Other areas of interest include the spacious living room, which features a built-in entertainment center in a striking Black Painted Oak to match the kitchen island. Accenting these darker furniture pieces, the kitchen cabinets are a beautiful Glacier White 5 pc Shaker Painted Maple. Another  area of interest is the utility room of The Thoroughbred, which boasts a custom bench seat and Ritz-Craft’s 6’ Utility Room Package.

According to Paul Lindsley, Ritz-Craft of Michigan General Manager, “One of the greatest strengths with "The Thoroughbred is the availability to modify the floor plan from 1560 sq. ft. to 2040 sq. ft. and the ability to choose from a variety of optional room layouts – a program we call ‘The Home Stretch.’  This flexibility allows builders to cater to various lifestyles, consumer needs and price points with a single model home investment.” 

Ritz-Craft has independent authorized building partners with model homes across 29 states and into Canada, making Ritz-Craft an industry leader in the system-built industry. Established in 1954 and headquartered in Mifflinburg, PA, Ritz-Craft remains a privately held company with additional manufacturing facilities in Michigan and North Carolina. In 2013, Ritz-Craft has been recognized with four awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design by the Building Systems Council of the NAHB.

In addition to homebuilding, Ritz-Craft has vertically integrated to include a cabinet manufacturer, Legacy Crafted Cabinets, and a home transportation company, Ritz-Trans. For more information about the Ritz-Craft family of companies, visit www.ritz-craft.com or call 800-326-9836.
