Marine Travelift, which manufactures mobile boat lifts and trailers, has opened a new facility in Ashland, Va. Marine Travelift Mid-Atlantic will offer boat-handling equipment support for customers from New Jersey to South Carolina.
“The goal of this expansion is to provide our customers in the Mid-Atlantic area with the best possible access to Marine Travelift equipment locally,” Erich Pfeifer, Marine Travelift President and CEO, said in a statement. “This includes OEM parts and high-quality service with factory support.”
Craig Lewis, sales manager at Marine Travelift Mid-Atlantic, has 16 years of experience with the company and will lead the sales team in Ashland. Kim Edds, product support manager at the new location, has 14 years with Marine Travelift and will lead the parts and service at the new location.
Marine Travelift will staff its Mid-Atlantic shop with factory-trained technicians. The company is planning to increase the amount of parts on hand.
