Correct Craft brands Bass Cat and Yar-Craft are building a new production facility that the companies say will increase output by more than 50 percent.
Since Correct Craft acquired Bass Cat and Yar-Craft in 2015, the company says it has experienced an increase in excess of 80 percent in sales. The new facility will allow Bass Cat and Yar-Craft to reduce its backlog.
“I’m thrilled to see what the future holds for Bass Cat and Yar-Craft,” said Pierce in a statement. “The entire team has worked hard to bet where we are today, and the expansion project will help our thrust into the future. Things here are extremely bright.”
Bill Yeargin, president and CEO of Correct Craft was on hand for the groundbreaking. “I could not be prouder of the initiatives Rick and his team have implemented the past three years to improve all the aspects of Bass Cat and Yar-Craft,” said Yeargin. “Those initiatives have resulted in a significant increase in demand for the company’s products. Correct Craft is thrilled to make this additional investment in Bass Cat and Yar-Craft to allow their team to have the resources they need to expand the capacity to continue building the world’s best bass and walleye fishing boats!”
