Nautique celebrated the expansion of its Florida manufacturing facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday.

Nautique Boat Co. completed an expansion of its manufacturing facility in Orlando, Fla., and says it plans to add more than 100 workers during the next three years.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Nautique’s world headquarters and manufacturing facility on Wednesday to celebrate the recently completed expansion project that began last June.

The 53,041-square-foot expansion brings the Orlando, Fla., facility to 269,936 square feet and includes significant improvements that Nautique said allows it to increase production and continue to advance their manufacturing techniques.

As Nautique continues to experience significant growth in the worldwide marketplace the company plans to increase its workforce to meet consumer demand.

“The entire Nautique team is excited about the new opportunities and manufacturing processes this facility expansion allows us to implement,” company president Greg Meloon said in a statement. “As we stay at the cutting edge of manufacturing and design, our facility will provide us the ability to continue to progress and lead the industry in innovation and quality.”
