About Marlette Manufactured Homes

 Marlette History

Creating Happy Customers for 60 Years

It all began in Marlette, Michigan in 1953 when Earl Swett, Charlie Ballard and Paul Riedle began making manufactured homes in a converted lumber company under the name of Marlette Coach Company.


Today, Marlette remains an icon in the manufactured housing industry. Located in Hermiston Oregon, near the border of Washington State, Marlette continues to pioneer new standards for design and quality that have repeatedly earned it "Manufacturer of the Year".


As a factory, Marlette has also been recognized as one of the industry's success stories. During the housing crisis, the deep loyalty to the Marlette product allowed for continually building homes while many others went by the wayside or became outsourced builders for other brands. Today, only Marlette continues its proud tradition of building a single brand. This allows Marlette to maintain strict quality control and consistency, fitting the Marlette reputation of "Designed for Living. Built for Life."
