Bass Cat and Yar-Craft said they have completed construction of a new building as well as renovated another building in their Mountain Home, Arkansas, headquarters. The company said in a statement that the expansions will increase production capacity by 40 percent.

The additions include a new repair facility, sewing facility, and lamination booths with an area dedicated specifically to building new production molds.

“This will increase efficiency and give Bass Cat and Yar-Craft each dedicated production areas and improve capacity,” said Rick Pierce, president of Bass Cat and Yar-Craft in the statement. “Through specialized roles, we will improve our training and quality. Our sales department now has the flexibility and capacity to meet the demands of both brands, which we could not do previously.”

The two brands are owned by Correct Craft. “It is exciting watching Bass Cat and Yar-Craft grow,” said Bill Yeargin, Correct Craft CEO, in the statement. “Our team is hard working and we cannot wait for what the future holds with this expansion. We strive to Make Life Better for all involved and we believe these additions will be doing that for customers, employees, vendors, and many others.”
