Getting to Know Champion Manufactured Homes
When you live in a manufactured housing community, the community you live in probably isn’t owned by the same company who built your manufactured home. For example, HomeFirst™ owns manufactured housing communities, but we don’t actually build them. Instead, our communities are full of manufactured homes built by many different manufacturers. Champion manufactured homes are just one brand of manufactured home you’ll find in our communities.
Since 1953, Champion Homes has been a trusted builder of manufactured homes. Over the past 62 years, they have grown from having one factory in Dryden, Michigan (they are now headquartered in Troy, Michigan) to being the second largest manufacturer of factory built homes in the United States. They now have 27 manufacturing facilities located throughout North America and Europe. So far, they have produced over 1.7 million factory built buildings in North America alone. In addition to manufactured homes, Champion also makes modular homes, travel trailers, and recreational vehicles.
Champion Homes has a strong reputation for being a leader in the manufactured home industry, particularly with regards to energy efficiency. In 2001, they became the first manufactured housing company to become Energy Star certified by the U.S. Department of Energy. Just one year later, they became the first manufactured home builder to be named an Energy Star Partner of the Year.
In addition to being a leader of energy efficiency, Champion Homes has also been recognized for their innovative designs. In recent years, they’ve won “Best New Home Design” and “Excellence in Home Design” from the Manufactured Housing Institute and the National Association of Homebuilders, in addition to several other industry awards.
