Nautic Global Group's Polar Kraft employees reached a safety milestone Tuesday, having gone two full years without a recordable safety incident resulting in an injury.

"Safety is a core value and our top priority each and every day, and this achievement is a result of uncompromising commitments to safety."

Executives from Polar Kraft's parent company, Nautic Global Group, will be celebrating the milestone Thursday at Polar Kraft's facility in Syracuse, Ind.
