Outer Armor announced that it opened a 75,000-square-foot facility in Monterrey, Mexico.
The Torrington, Conn.-based producer of boat covers and accessories now has five facilities in North America. (Other locations are in Philipsburg, Miss., Loudon, Tenn., and Tijuana, Mexico.) The new location is expected to double capacity of its PWC and boat cover production.
“The added capacity will allow us to fulfill the increased demand for marine and power sport accessories, as well as set up the Commercial Sewing network for future growth,” partner Stephen Mazzarelli said in a statement. “In addition to adding capacity, the location will be beneficial to combat costs and improve delivery times for our customers in the Southwest market.”
“Seeing the impact of Covid on the marine industry, we also set higher goals to ensure that our supply chain remains secure across multiple compliant sources to meet our plant volume requirements,” Mazzarelli added.
