Westwinn Group Corp., the Vernon, B.C. builders of Harbercraft, Jetcraft and Kingfisher aluminum boats, is hosting its annual dealer conference Sept. 1-2 at its new WestWinn Center of Excellence manufacturing facility in Vernon.
The official opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will precede the 2010 model showcase featuring eight new models and more than 50 upgrades to its current 30-model lineup.
"Product development has been hard at work designing and fabricating more new exciting products driven by dealer input to ensure we grow our position as the No. 1 all-welded aluminum boatbuilder in Canada," said Byron Bolton, president and CEO, in a statement.
For this year's conference theme "Under One Roof - On Solid Ground," the focus is not solely on WestWinn's commitment to manufacturing excellence with its new 53,000-square-foot facility, it also concentrates on inventory management tools and financing alternatives that leverage WestWinn's solid financial position.
