Winnebago Industries moving corporate HQ from Iowa to Eden Prairie

The company manufactures products including motor homes, trailers and boats.

Winnebago Industries will move its corporate headquarters from northern Iowa to Eden Prairie later this year.

The outdoor lifestyle brand, which manufactures products including motor homes, trailers and boats, is currently headquartered in Forest City Iowa. Winnebago Industries operates the Winnebago, Grand Design, Chris-Craft and Newmar brands.

The company announced the move, effective Dec. 1, on Wednesday.

Winnebago Industries' executive offices have already been in Eden Prairie since 2016, according to the announcement. Along with Iowa and Minnesota, the company has facilities in Indiana and Florida.

Of its 6,500 total employees, around 100 are currently based in Eden Prairie.

The company still plans to keep northern Iowa as its “manufacturing hub” for motorhomes and specialty vehicles. It will keep its 2,100 employees there and plans to grow, according to the announcement.

“Over the past several years, through strategic growth investments, we have expanded our company’s footprint to now include locations in Iowa, Indiana, Florida and Minnesota,” Winnebago Industries President and CEO Michael Happe said in a statement.

“Our Twin Cities location has been and will continue to be an effective resource for executing our vision as a premier outdoor recreation enterprise, as it supports the growth of all of our strong brands.”
