The North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance, a regional marine building industry sector partnership involving seven of Wisconsin's marine manufacturers and three higher educational institutions, launched its new website.

The creation of the North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance and its website were made possible by an Industry Sector Partnership Convening Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

Last September, ACE Marine LLC, Bay Shipbuilding Corp., Burger Boat Co., Cruiser Yachts, Marinette Marine Corp., Marquis Yachts and Palmer Johnson joined with Lakeshore Technical College, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Marinette to form the partnership.

The purpose of the alliance is to convene ship/yacht/boat manufacturers to work in partnership with work force development, educational institutions, economic development and labor.

The organization decided to incorporate the name “North Coast” because it is on the Great Lakes.
