Ritz-Craft Corporation of Michigan Announces Second Saturday Factory Tours

Come Tour the Factory

JONESVILLE MI: Ritz-Craft Corporation of Michigan will open its doors to retail customers on the second Saturday of each month for tours of its manufacturing facilities. Each Saturday will feature a timeline of events as follows: 

9:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon                    Model Homes Open
10:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.                   Video Presentation/Q&A Session

11:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon                  Model Home Tour
12:00 noon                                      Closed

According to Paul Lindsley, General Manager of the Michigan facility, potential homeowners are encouraged to contact their local Ritz-Craft homebuilder to set up a tour: “We strongly encourage everyone to consult with an approved Ritz-Craft builder prior to your visit. This is to ensure that all of your needs are met, as your local builder will be able to provide answers to any questions you may have about your specific building site."

These factory tours are aimed at educating the public on the advantages of custom, system-built homes from Ritz-Craft. By building homes in a climate controlled manufacturing facility, Ritz-Craft is able to incorporate many money-saving benefits for each homebuyer. Tour participants will get a first-hand look at the system-building technologies used by Ritz-Craft to engineer custom homes that are stronger and more energy efficient. By operating indoors, issues relating to weather are removed from the building process and the entire home can be constructed in about one third of the time it would take for an on-site construction project.   

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 or call 877-878-4025.
