SeaArk Boats said its production facility in Monticello, Ark. is undergoing expansion and renovation to accommodate growing sales demand.

Renovations will include a 4,455-square-foot expansion of the company’s paint department building. The expansion will house a new GatorHide booth with capacity for two boats, a new urethane booth and three flat paint booths. Sea Ark said the entire department will be equipped with new state-of-the-art plug and paint equipment.

Additional facility upgrades will include new concrete slabs between the welding and rigging departments, as well as a slab and awning at the front of the rigging department. The flow of the welding and rigging shops will be rearranged to increase production efficiency and allow for additional machinery in the welding department.

“The current improvement projects are significant, with several additional projects still on the drawing board,” SeaArk president Steve Henderson said in a statement. “We are excited about the changes that we are making. We feel that this will not only increase production efficiencies, but also create a better work environment for our employees to grow and be more productive.”

The company said the additional projects are in the initial planning stage and will be announced at a later date.
