Earlier this year, the company moved into the building on the Industrial Loop that was formerly occupied by Bold Ideas firearms manufacturing and, before that, Karsten Homes. After doing some work to customize the facility to their needs, New Vision started hiring in September. (Click here to read the Breckenridge Texan’s original article on New Vision.)

New Vision is working on an order of 100 man camps and has a backlog of 200-250 more on order, said Plant Manager Andy Nauert. Another customer wants to order 300 of the housing units that are used in the oil fields.

The man camp housing unit is 18 feet wide by 80 feet long and includes six private bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The company intends to eventually add “tiny houses” and modular homes to the manufacturing line.

“These are built just like a house,” Nauert said. “If they’re taken care of, they should last as long as a regular house.”

The plant currently has about 80 employees, but the management anticipates needing up 200 or more employees with the plant is working a full capacity.
