KCS International began the year with 100 employees and the upturn in the economy and increased sales in domestic, Asian and Latin America markets have made it possible for former employees to return to work.

"The growth we have already seen this year has us very optimistic," said Mark Pedersen, president of KCS International, in a statement. "The months ahead are looking quite bright as we re-establish ourselves as one of the world's leading yacht manufacturers. Because of our projections, we want to encourage people looking for work to consider joining the Cruisers Yachts and Rampage family."

KCS International is based in Oconto, Wis.
