Clayton Homes, one of the nation’s largest builders of manufactured housing and a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/A), tells MHProNews that they have launched a new division of the company that will deliver homes from home building facilities to retail home centers.

Clayton Home Transport will be a part of Clayton home building group, the company’s home building and manufacturing division.

Clayton Home Transport is an extension of the home building process,” said Keith Holdbrooks, Clayton home building group president.

Our new fleet of trucks will allow us to deliver our homes, using quality equipment, to provide a world-class customer experience.

Clayton held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its Clayton Appalachia home building facility in Andersonville, Tennessee on December 8th to celebrate the rollout of its new division and the introduction of its new fleet of trucks.

The initiative was designed to better control the process between the Clayton Appalachia home building facility and the retailers it serves. It will also provide additional transportation capacity for the facility.

Now, we can control and care for our homes on the road,” Holdbrooks said. “Our drivers spend weeks of their training in the home building facility learning all the processes and safety procedures before they deliver any homes.
