Regulator Marine announced plans for a phase-two factory expansion and a new Lean Manufacturing initiative at its largest annual Regulator Marine University last week in Edenton, N.C.

The Nov. 13-15 event provided three days of interactive training sessions, seminars with Yamaha and Garmin and keynote speeches from sales experts.

“RMU is one of my favorite events of the year,” Regulator president Joan Maxwell said in a statement. “Gathering our dealers and salespeople for learning, recognition and collaborative feedback on where Regulator is headed is critical to our success. This year it took on even greater meaning as we introduced the next phase of what we are doing to meet demand and previewed the first Regulator with sunshade comfort and tow-bar option.”

The company unveiled new mid-model year option upgrades such as a SureShade automated cockpit boat shade available on the Regulator 28, a forward sunshade also available on the 28 and a removable watersports tow bar, which is available on all models.

Awards were also handed out to dealers.

Oyster Harbor Marine in Osterville, Mass., won the Dealership of the Year Award; five-time winner Michael Hayes of Suffolk Marine Center in Babylon, N.Y., won the Salesman of the Year Award.

Paul Ochs of Catawba Moorings in Port Clinton, Ohio, accepted the Northeast Salesman of the Year Award; Kevin Hunter of Bluewater Yacht Sales in Mobile, Ala., accepted the Southeast Salesman of the Year Award; and Scott James of Bluewater Yacht Sales in Hampton, Va., accepted the Mid-Atlantic Salesman of the Year Award.
