Florida Manufactured Homes Are “Hand-Built” For You

FMHA launches campaign to educate consumers

[Tallahassee, Fla.] – Florida Manufactured Housing Association (FMHA) today announced the launch of the “Hand-Built Homes” campaign. Designed to educate consumers about the process of constructing manufactured houses, the “Hand-Built” campaign emphasizes the craftsmanship and passion that go into building each FMHA member-affiliated home. The marketing effort includes web pages, brochures, online ads and four videos, all of which feature the men and women who design, build and sell manufactured houses in Florida.

“Manufactured homes in Florida are hand-built by hard-working, skilled craftsmen who genuinely love what they do,” said Jim Ayotte, Executive Director of FMHA. “From floor to ceiling, these professionals build with a passion for quality and with meticulous detail. They are the backbone of our industry, so it was only natural for us to showcase them as we talk about our incredible homes.”

“Hand-Built Homes” will illustrate the process by which manufactured homes are made, concentrating on the thoughtful design and exceptional construction. This intentional focus will help consumers understand that manufactured homes are built by people who are accomplished in their trade, whether they be cabinet makers, electricians or roofers. Further, the campaign will champion the quality of hand-built homes by showcasing the regulated, efficient environment in which the houses are constructed.
