SA Bass - - Angling International -

Bass Cat and sis­ter com­pany Yar-Craft have an­nounced plans to in­crease the num­ber of boats pro­duced at their Arkansas fa­cil­ity by more than 50%.

The project is ex­pected to cre­ate around sixty new jobs, will ex­pand ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties by 18,000 square feet and see the con­struc­tion of a new build­ing.

The com­pany says that im­proved mar­ket­ing, sales and new prod­uct de­vel­op­ment have driven de­mand ahead of mar­ket growth over the past three years. The ex­pan­sion will en­able both brands to re­duce the re­sult­ing sig­nif­i­cant back­log.

An­nounc­ing the plans last week, Bill Year­gin, CEO of par­ent com­pany Cor­rect Craft, and Rick Pierce, Pres­i­dent of both brands, said they were thrilled to see what the fu­ture holds for Bass Cat and Yar-Craft.

“The en­tire team has worked hard to get where we are today and this project will help our thrust into the fu­ture. Things here are ex­tremely bright,” said Pierce.
