Unified Marine is opening a facility in Bonita Springs, Fla., which will house a new research and design department and a quality-control testing center.

The 2,000-square-foot facility marks the third new facility for Unified Marine since 2006. The company opened a 40,000-square-foot headquarters in Newport, Tenn., in 2006 and a 20,000-square-foot warehouse in the same area in 2009.

"This new location will allow us to continue the industry-leading innovation and quality-control standards that have made UMI the most trusted name in the marine and trailer industries for over a quarter of a century," CEO David Nirenberg said in a statement.
