Better Way Products opens Missouri production facility

Better Way Products has opened a production facility in Lebanon, Mo., where it will build fiberglass components and small parts for boat manufacturers.

The 25,000-square-foot facility is part of a larger initiative to build products closer to where Better Way customers are based. Central Missouri is home to recreational fiberglass and pontoon-boat builders. Better Way has invested in 7-axis water-jet trimming and resin-transfer molding that results in fiberglass that’s smooth on both sides.

“For over 30 years, Better Way Products has distinguished itself with its capability to fabricate fiberglass of the highest quality, from small and complex to over 40 feet long,” Clint Decker, business unit director for Better Way Products, said in a statement. “This move represents a commitment to our customers and their respective regional manufacturing communities.”
