A&M Manufacturing and StyleCraft Boats, are moving into a 210,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Alachua, Fla.
The former Marlow-Hunter plant has been idle for some time. At its peak, Hunter built 1,400 sailboats a year and employed as many as 400 people.
In a statement, A&M owner John Hemken credited David Marlow for bringing a boatbuilder back to the facility. In addition, production of the Marlow-Hunter daysailer line from 15 to 22 feet will be transferred to the site and built by A&M under the Hunter brand.
Preparations to restart the facility began last month, with the goal of commencing production by the end of October.
A&M Manufacturing builds StyleCraft, EliteCraft, WideTide and Hunter boats.
Last year, GrowFL recognized A&M as one of its Top 50 Companies to Watch.
