WARREN, R.I. — Pearson Marine Group is the new name for Pearson Composites, according to a release from the company.
Pearson says the change is intended to draw attention to its "long and remarkable history of innovation, its emergence from the marine industry's downturn and its focus on the smart luxury brands of boats the company is building and selling."
A new website at pearsonmarinegroup.com has been launched to unite Alerion sailing yachts, True North expedition powerboats, North Rip sport fishing boats and to demonstrate the advantages of their shared corporate origin. The site links to the separate sites for each brand.
"Pearson Marine Group was seen as a logical name-change from Pearson Composites," the company said in the release. "This company's heritage extends back 50 years to Everett Pearson, an industry visionary who built TPI Composites after co-founding Pearson Yachts. Following his retirement, TPI split into three separate profitable companies."
