Golden Boat Lifts has expanded its manufacturing space by 7,000 square feet on a recently purchased 1.15 acre parcel adjacent to its current 40,000 square-foot facility in North Fort Myers, Fla. The company retains its address and ISO accreditation.
The move was spurred by Golden Boat Lifts' growing product line, especially its recently introduced Tornado Lift for which demand has been swelling.
The freestanding hydraulic lift marks the company's entry into the inland market and a freshly bolstered customer base.
"The new space provides the room to streamline and increase our manufacturing capabilities, and ensure the quality that our lifts are known for worldwide," said Bill Golden, president and CEO.
Parallel to the expansion, Golden Boat Lifts is expanding its workforce, readying itself with 60 parking spaces, and adding three-phase electric power for eight new welding machines and four automatic saws. The recently announced expansion will free up additional space for manufacturing Golden Marine Systems docks and gangways.
For over 30 years, Golden Boat Lifts has engineered and manufactured a wide range of lifts for watercraft up to 250,000 pounds.
The company is the only aluminum frame boat lift manufacturer to hold ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.
