N.J. lieutenant governor tours Atlantic Towers

New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno this week continued her statewide business tour with a visit to marine accessories manufacturer Atlantic Towers in Bayville.

“This is an industry that belongs in New Jersey,” Guadagno said, citing the state’s 127 miles of coastline and the Jersey shore’s status as a premier tourist attraction. “The [Gov. Chris] Christie administration is committed to supporting the boating industry and helping it expand.”

Touring the facility, the lieutenant governor saw products that were ready for shipment to such destinations as Tahiti and Australia. All of the company’s manufacturing is done in New Jersey, and all of its materials are acquired from U.S. vendors.

“I’m happy that the lieutenant governor took the time to see our small business,” Atlantic Towers director of marine sales Shelley Golden said in a statement. “I feel that she really has a grasp of what we are doing here in Bayville.”

The stop at Atlantic Towers was No. 48 on the lieutenant governor’s statewide tour of 100 businesses.
