Dixie Chopper Acquires Former Coatesville, IN Facility
Fillmore, Indiana (January 26, 2023) – Dixie Chopper has finalized its purchase of the former manufacturing facility located in Coatesville, Indiana. The original family farm where Dixie Chopper was born is now the new (old) home for the assembly of mowers.
“I can remember where we drew the frame design on the barn floor with chalk for the first production Dixie Chopper” says Wes Evans, Business Unit Manager of Dixie Chopper. “My team and I are very excited to move back to the Coatesville facility and continue building the World’s Fastest Lawn Mower®.”
Dixie Chopper currently utilizes a building on the east side of Greencastle (Fillmore) where they assemble zero-turn mowers and warehouse the parts department. The transition to the new facility is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2023.
“We have absolutely outgrown the Fillmore facility,” said Lisa Tubbs, President of RhinoAg and Dixie Chopper. “In order to continue growing the Dixie Chopper business, it was imperative that we located a bigger building to facilitate this growth. The Coatesville building has such a sentimental value to the employees and we are ready to get moved in.”
