Ribcraft planning to boost production

Ribcraft, of Marblehead, Mass., is expanding its production facilities to meet the growing demand for its rigid hull inflatables.

"As most boatbuilders are scaling production way back, we are fortunate to be growing and expanding,” company president Brian Gray said in a statement.

The expansion will allow for increases in production and improvements in manufacturing efficiencies, according to Ribcraft. Also, the company's corporate offices, including sales and marketing, will move into the same building from the current location about a mile away.
