OCONTO, Wis. – KCS International Inc., the parent company of Cruisers Yachts and Rampage Sport Fishing Yachts, has rehired 100 employees to work on new orders for both brands, according to a release from the company.
"As the company began the year with 100 employees, the upturn in the economy and increased sales in domestic, Asian and Latin America markets have made it possible for former employees to return," the company said in the release.
Mark Pedersen, president of KCS International, encouraged skilled workers to apply for jobs based on the company's growth projections.
“The growth we have already seen this year has us very optimistic,” Pedersen said in the release. “The months ahead are looking quite bright as we re-establish ourselves as one of the world’s leading yacht manufacturers. Because of our projections, we want to encourage people looking for work to consider joining the Cruisers Yachts and Rampage family. We always welcome resumes from skilled workers.”
New yacht orders have expanded production, creating a backlog for vessels and resulting in some supplier lead time issues.
“We are happy to have these types of challenges knowing we can work through them,” said Pedersen.
