Florida Gov. Rick Scott visited Correct Craft’s Nautique boatbuilding facility as the company announced plans for an $8 million expansion and the addition of more than 200 employees at the facility.
The company also announced the imminent opening of its second Florida cable and boat park, Miami Watersports Complex.
Nautique officials say the expansion will allow the company to continue the significant growth it has seen as a result of increased domestic market share and record international sales.
The governor congratulated the company on its growth and the impact it has had on the Florida community and congratulated it on recently being named Florida’s Manufacturer of the Year.
“Our team is thrilled to have Gov. Scott visit us again and recognize the incredible results of our team,” Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “We are fortunate to operate in a business-friendly state that supports our efforts to expand internationally. I am incredibly honored to be part of such an unbelievable team; we truly have a unique culture, which results in both a fun and high-performance environment and is a big driver of our results.”
