The Marquis-Larson Boat Group is looking to hire workers with the recent addition of Larson, Larson FX, Larson Escape and Striper to the group.

The group also said increased orders of Carver Yachts contributed to the need for more manufacturing staff.

"The commitment from our current workforce has been unbelievable, enabling the integration and current production of the four Larson brands and 39 boat models," Marquis-Larson president and CEO Rob Parmentier said in a statement. "But we need to be able to meet the growing need for our products while relieving our current associates, and so we will expand our workforce by 20 percent."

Marquis-Larson Boat Group will need to fill nearly 70 manufacturing positions in its Pulaski, Wis., factory. These skilled and non-skilled positions include but are not limited to: lamination, assembly, welding, carpentry and upholstery.

"This is an exciting time for Marquis-Larson and we look forward to building a strong team that will help move the company forward during this time of growth," manufacturing and operations vice president Paul Liss said in a statement.
