Hornet Marine announced that production manager Dave Mays accepted a position at Global Maritek Systems in St. Augustine, Fla., and will join its marine service division in a quality assurance role.

“Mr. Mays has played an instrumental role in growing our manufacturing processes. We wish him the best of luck with his new position as he and his family relocate back to their native Florida,” company president David Hartmann said in a statement. “The Hornet Marine team will continue to cater to the luxury market by delivering custom boats built to the highest of standards.”

Mays assisted the boatbuilder in streamlining production processes to reduce overall build times. This resulted in a reduction of roughly 25 percent labor time or 40 hours that go into each boat build at Hornet Marine. At the same time, significant progress was made in improving the overall quality of each custom boat.
