On Oct. 4, Correct Craft and its manufacturing companies across the country participated in Manufacturing Day by hosting students at its factories.
Five Correct Craft plants from Florida to California invited students to learn about both boat manufacturing processes and job opportunities in marine manufacturing. Correct Craft companies also gave the students plant tours.
- Centurion and Supreme Boats partnered with the Merced County Office of Education who brought over 30 local high school students to the factory. The Centurion and Supreme teams provided the students an opportunity to see first-hand how boats are built and see the great jobs that exist in manufacturing.
- Bass Cat and Yar-Craft Boats partnered with local schools and hosted students at their factory for a comprehensive tour and informed them about careers in marine manufacturing.
- Nautique Boats partnered with the Manufacturers Association of Central Florida to bring 24 students to the state-of-the-art Nautique factory for an in-depth tour and panel presentation.
- Pleasurecraft Engine Group (PEG) partnered with the Newberry County Career Center who brought students to the factory for a detailed tour of machining, production, and to learn more about careers in engine manufacturing.
- SeaArk Boats will host students on the 11th of October and partner with local high schools to invite students interested in the agriculture/trade programs to the SeaArk factory for a thorough tour. Students will learn how SeaArk boats are built and about the variety of careers available after they graduate.
