AdvanTec consolidates Pacific Coast Marine operations


AdvanTec Global Innovations said Tuesday that it will consolidate its Pacific Coast Marine manufacturing operations into other AdvanTec manufacturing facilities in the United States and Canada, effective July 31.

"This move will expand PCM’s product capabilities," AdvanTec CEO Paul Hill said in a statement. "Consolidating manufacturing will allow us to demonstrate improved efficiencies and will provide greater opportunity for innovation."

Pacific Coast Marine will continue to operate its sales and service hub out of the Seattle area. The Pacific Coast Marine sales and service office remaining in the Seattle area will be managed by AdvanTec executive vice president of sales and marketing Darren Loken.

"This evolution will help make our entire marine group more efficient," Loken said. "We'll be sharing our vast resources across the organization as never before and the dedicated PCM sales and service team the industry has relied on for years will continue to meet our customers' needs.”
