ORLANDO, FL (December 12, 2014) — Today the Correct Craft team welcomed Florida Governor Rick Scott to its Nautique boat building facility in Orlando, Florida. During the visit the company made some key announcements:
- The company announced an $8 million dollar expansion of its Nautique boat building facility. The expansion will allow the company to continue the significant growth it has achieved in the past few years.
- The company announced plans to increase its Florida workforce by over 200 employees. The combination of increased domestic market share and a record year of international sales has positioned the company for significant growth in the years ahead.

Governor Scott applauded the Nautique team on its growth the past four years and the positive impact the company has had on the Florida economy.
