Seaspension Technologies announced that the company moved to a new location.

“STI has moved their operations to a smaller facility in Largo, Fla., to reduce overhead costs. Larger production runs and aggressive negotiations with their entirely domestic supplier base have also helped to bring down the cost of producing the pedestals,” the company said in a statement.

Seaspension also announced a price reduction on all pedestals from $795 to $595.

“The move was intended to help boaters afford to upgrade their seating during these tough economic times,” the company said.
