Nautique wins manufacturing honor in Florida

The Nautique Boat Co. was selected as Florida’s 2014 Manufacturer of the Year from a pool of 18,200 manufacturers.

This award, presented annually by the Manufacturers Association of Florida, is given to a company that demonstrates leadership in all areas of its business. It is the result of a vetting process that includes on-site visits and operational reviews from manufacturing peers and association officials.

The award was announced Thursday at the MAF Manufacturers Summit in Destin. Prior winners include Lockheed Martin, Harris Corp. and Johnson & Johnson.

“We have an amazing team at Nautique; I am so incredibly proud of them for winning this award,” Nautique president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “There are many world-class manufacturers in Florida and the examination of our operations was rigorous; to be selected as the best in the state is a real tribute to a special group of people who make up the Nautique team. We have a very unique and amazing culture at Nautique (and all our Correct Craft companies); I appreciate the work done by the MAF and their recognition of both our team and what we have built at Nautique.”
