Gold Heat awarded Newmar Top 10 premier vendor

Gold Heat continues to skyrocket in status in the RV Manufacturing industry, as Newmar® Corporation, names Gold Heat, a Top 10 Premier Vendor.

Newmar Corporation’s annual review of its RV parts suppliers recognizes the Gold Heat team by elevating the motor home electric radiant floor heat mat manufacturer to Top 10 Premier Vendor status.


The Newmar Corporation, which was recently acquired by Winnebago® in November 2019, has an industry-leading portfolio of premium motorhomes in the Class A Diesel, Class A Gas, and Super C categories are sold through a nationwide dealer network in the US and Canada.

With its humble beginnings in the luxury motorcoach manufacturing industry, Gold Heat’s innovative custom radiant floor heat mat system came about because of a demand to improve its time to install a mat on the assembly line.

To respect the line roll of motorcoach manufacturing, Gold Heat invented a custom-designed radiant floor heat mat that was already designed, already wired, and terminated. The installer just lays down the mat, adheres it to the subfloor, hooks up to power, and they are ready to tile the same day.

Today, Gold Heat, America’s premier manufacturer of customized electric radiant floor heat mats for the motorcoach / RV manufacturing industry, announces Gold Heat’s elevation to “Premier Vendor” status.  Newmar Corporation’s “Top 10 Premier Vendor” status is awarded annually to an elite group of trusted and reliable Newmar motorhome/ RV parts suppliers serving the RV manufacturing giant.

During Newmar’s annual supplier evaluation process, Newmar team members reviewed Gold Heat’s ability to meet product demand consistently and reliably support the RV / motorhome floor heat product.

Newmar’s annual review recognizes suppliers for outstanding performance based on eight (8) categories and selects its top 10 premier vendors.  Newmar team members evaluate all of their supplier’s performance through internal surveys. 

Additionally, Gold Heat’s evaluation is based on a Newmar team member’s interactions with its purchasing, manufacturing, quality, service, and engineering departments.  Suppliers must score at least 195 of a possible 201 points. The company scored a perfect 201, again for the 5th consecutive year.

“Newmar and Gold Heat’s business values are well-aligned. As the industry comes out of the craziness that is 2020, it seems that Newmar and Gold Heat could face any challenge together. I’m proud to be chosen by them as a trusted supplier, “
