Speaking on the results, CEO Bob Martin said, “We posted record results in our third fiscal quarter, achieving both the highest quarterly net sales and net income figures in the history of THOR Industries. These results show that growth continued unabated after the initial temporary shutdown of our dealers and THOR Industries’ production lines in late March through the end of April of last year due to the pandemic. We have increased our production levels, often with modest capital expenditures, and intend to continue to increase production levels to address the ongoing, robust consumer and dealer demand for THOR Industries RV products, while also managing through continuing supply chain challenges.”
