Triton Boats Announces Extended Aluminum Production Line

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. Fishing Holdings, LLC dba Triton Boats, a leading manufacturer of fiberglass and aluminum fishing boats, announces that it will soon begin manufacturing two new series of aluminum boats. The newest line of X Series and Utility Series aluminum boats will be manufactured in a new state of the art dedicated facility located in Flippin, Ark.

Triton’s Aluminum facility includes existing manufacturing space as well as office and administrative areas. The company will invest $2.5 million to transition and expand the facility and plans to create more than 50 new jobs over the next several months.

Known for quality and performance, Triton’s dedication to develop an extended aluminum lineup is a reflection of continued commitment to its loyal and diverse customers.

Triton is continuing to build on the tradition and heritage of a company that produces quality from top to bottom. The newest members of an already successful fiberglass line up are tailored to fit every need for pursuing both angling and hunting.

The new aluminum boat line will initially include three Triton X Series models and four Triton Utility Series models designed to reach a wide variety of anglers and hunters with a broader line of Aluminum models to follow. Triton Aluminum boats are scheduled to begin production during the fourth quarter of 2012.

“The decision to extend our reach in aluminum boats was simply a matter of listening to our customers, who were looking for an alternative to the current market offerings,” said Triton founder, Earl Bentz. “We continually strive to offer our customers a top-of-the-line aluminum boat. Triton aluminum boats have been designed to exceed boating industry standards, and we look forward to giving our customers the same unparalleled stability and performance that they have come to rely upon with all of our boats.”
