Our Story

Since Jim Clayton first opened our doors in 1956, we have been proud to provide affordable manufactured and modular homes, apartments, commercial buildings, military barracks, and college dormitories to people all across America. The first home center was opened in 1966 in Knoxville, TN, and we have grown over the years to over 320 home centers in 31 states as well as 35 home building facilities across the country. Additionally, Clayton became part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway family of companies in 2003. Today we build, sell, finance, lease and insure our homes from coast to coast.

Our strength as an organization is rooted in quality – the quality of our people and the quality of our products. We’re financially strong, with a reputation for leading the industry with unsurpassed products, a broad range of services and a coast-to-coast presence. And we’re professionally strong, supported by more than 12,000 team members, who share their ideas and consistently challenge us to work smarter. And that’s just what we need: ambitious candidates like you, who want to impact our business and create a solid career.

From entry level to more experienced positions, we’re actively recruiting individuals like you who are passionate, positive and eager to learn. Then we equip you for success – whether you’re in the office, in the field or on the floor. As a member of our team, you’ll enjoy excellent benefits, opportunities for growth and an encouraging culture that supports work life balance.
