The former Sea Ray and Bertram facility on Florida’s Merritt Island is getting a new occupant, Florida Today reported.
Merritt Island Boat Works is coming to the Florida community with plans to create 380 jobs by 2018, with an average salary of $45,000.
The company had considered locations in both North Carolina and South Carolina as well, but chose Brevard “for its available workforce and access to U.S. and international markets,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement.
Last fall, Brevard County officials agreed to a variety of tax incentives to bring the company — known only as “Project Transom at the time — to the community.
