With demand strong for mobile homes, Berkshire Hathaway’s Clayton Homes, the number one builder of mobile homes, is negotiating to open a plant in Wichita, Texas.
The new facility would be located at the site of the former ATCO building on Burkburnett Road.
If all goes as anticipated, the plant will add 200 jobs to the city.
Currently, Clayton Homes has eight plants in Texas that are all running at capacity.
Damage from September’s Hurricane Harvey has increased the need for modular homes in Texas.
