From the bloggers at the Fit RV:
If you’ve never been to the Winnebago headquarters, prepare to be surprised. You’d think, as big of a company as they are, they’d be in a bustling big city. But actually, Forest City, Iowa is a typical, tiny Iowa town (population 4,000) with a large agricultural influence.
That’s not the only surprising thing. Even though this is a publicly traded company, and not family-owned like our other favorites, it had that family feel to it. It’s small-town people running it, so it makes sense. I find this incredibly endearing; perhaps partly because I feel such a connection, with Winnebago being a huge part of my birth state and all.
There’s a lot of pride in this company, and there’s even a long list of people who have been working there OVER 30 years.
