MetalCraft Marine moves to new location


MetalCraft Marine is moving from Clayton, N.Y., to a facility at the Anchor Marina in Cape Vincent, N.Y.

“We have been in Clayton, N.Y., since 2007. We recently spent considerable time looking for larger facilities in the Clayton area, and we received great support from local officials,” the company said. “In the end we were unable to find suitable space on-water for launching our larger boats, such as the FireStorm 70 and our new Sentry line of stealth patrol craft.”

MetalCraft plans to increase its upstate New York staff from the current 11 people to as many as 18 within a year. The company has 87 employees in Kingston, Ontario.

The company designs and builds custom aluminum boats for the government and commercial markets.
