Scout Boats recently hired four people at its South Carolina-based headquarters — Plant B manager, production engineer, sales coordinator and warranty/customer service coordinator.

“With demand for our models increasing at an incredible rate year after year, we wanted to fill positions at the plant with the appropriate talent,” Scout executive vice president Dave Wallace said in a statement. “We actually have more employees now than we did pre-recession, all working together to meet our demand. These four new hires fit in perfectly with our culture here and are tremendous assets for our brand.”
