“Correct Craft is a great Florida manufacturer,” Scott said after touring the plant. “This year we made it our priority to build up Florida manufacturing so companies like Correct Craft could expand and grow in the Sunshine State. By removing the tax on manufacturing equipment, Florida businesses like Correct Craft will now be able meet their full potential and finally be on a level playing field when competing against other states and other countries.”

Two new models (the G23 and G25) have helped drive export and domestic sales, enabling Orlando-based Correct Craft to increase its work force by 58 percent, compared with 2010 levels, according to a press release issued by the governor’s office.

“Our Nautique team was honored today to have Florida Gov. Rick Scott visit our world headquarters in Central Florida and spend time with many of our employees,” Correct Craft President and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a press release issued by the company. “Besides updating Gov. Scott on our boat and cable operations, I was also grateful for the opportunity to share some of the unique aspects of Nautique’s culture with the governor, including our unique drive for innovation and our Nautique Cares initiatives.”

Yeargin was honored with the Governor’s Ambassador Award at the event.

“This award is really recognition of our incredible team and the great job they have done,” Yeargin said.
