Bennington Marine, founded in 1997, reported $105.2 million revenue in 2004 and $152.0 million revenue in 2007. Noteworthy company accomplishments include a global dealer network, NMMA customer satisfaction excellence six years running, JD Powers award recognition in 2004, and market share leadership in the pontoon industry.
