TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- Officials with the recreational trailer company Jayco Inc. say 200 workers will be hired and production will be increased at plants in Twin Falls and Middlebury, Ind.

The Times-News reports that Akos Sefcisk, general manager of Twin Falls operations, says as many as 30 people will be hired in Twin Falls, bringing the total local payroll to more than 180 employees.

Jayco sales outpaced inventories in the third and fourth quarters of 2009, prompting the decision.

Jayco officials say they'll ramp up production beginning in December, so the company can restock depleted showroom floors before the spring of 2010.
