Nautic Global Group ramps up production in Indiana

Nautic Global Group is increasing production at its three Indiana plants and is beginning to interview for 70 factory positions.

"The boating industry and the RV industry took a huge [dive]. The numbers you've seen pre-2009 were probably cut in half, if not even more, so it has taken the past two or three years for us to come out of this," marketing director Jeff Roth told WSBT, an NBC affiliate in Elkhart, where one of the plants is located. The other two are in Syracuse, Ind.

"Most of the folks in the marine industry are experiencing these increases in retail registration, so because of that we need to keep up with consumer demand," Roth said.

"I think slow growth is what we will be seeing the next several years,” he added. “I think all of us in the marine industry probably learned some lessons. With the number of boats we build and the inventory we put out in the field, we are now a little more controlled."
