ELKHART, Ind., Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thor Industries, Inc. (NYSE: THO) today announced that Peter B. Orthwein, Thor Executive Chairman, Bob Martin, Thor President and CEO, and other members of the Thor management team will ring The Closing Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Monday, August 29, 2016 at 4:00 pm ET. The bell ringing is in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the listing of Thor's common stock on the NYSE.
"We are pleased to celebrate another significant milestone in the history of Thor," said Peter B. Orthwein, Thor Executive Chairman. "When we decided to list our shares on the NYSE in 1986, Thor was still a relatively new company, and now after three decades of hard work, we are one of the strongest recreational vehicle manufacturers in the world. This record of growth and accomplishment would not have been possible without our great employees, dealers, suppliers and business partners like the NYSE."
Bob Martin, Thor President and CEO, commented, "Our entire team is proud of the history of growth and profitability of Thor, which has been the result of the hard work of all of our employees and great support from our dealers and retail customers. As we celebrate this milestone, we look back at a year of record accomplishments, including the successful acquisition of Jayco, while looking forward to future success over the next 30 years at Thor."
