American Landmaster Cuts Ribbon on Indiana Production Line

Columbia City, Ind.- American Landmaster, makers of the LandStar series of sport utility vehicles (UTV), cut the ribbon on their on their new consolidated corporate headquarters, customer showroom and manufacturing facility in Columbia City, Indiana on Wednesday, November 29.


American LandMaster is a Fort Wayne, Indiana based company that started in 1968 as Manco Products, a well-known go-kart, mini-bite and ATV producer. Through various mergers Manco went into the UTV business after acquiring its Roseland, Louisiana factory. Last year the products were re-branded with the American Landmaster moniker and now production has moved to the Columbia City plant where assembly, engineering and management all work under the same roof.


American Landmaster President and CEO Pat Morello explained during the brief ceremony attended by local business and political leaders, ”This is really about consolidating our manufacturing footprint so we can drive better quality and innovation and really take this platform to bigger and better things.”


The LandStar series includes seven models of UTV, including an all-electric vehicle, in a variety of two- and four-wheel drive and cab configurations. The entire model lineup is top quality but budget-friendly and is aimed squarely at the home, farm, outdoors and workplace market rather than the powersport enthusiast who might be looking for a 60-mile-per hour buzz saw ride.


“You need something you can get out, get on and get to work- and we have that at an affordable price point,” noted Morello.
