Nautic Global Group is increasing production at its three Indiana plants and is beginning to interview for 70 factory positions.

If you or someone you know is looking for a great job in southwestern Michigan or northern Indiana (known as Michiana), Nautic Global Group is having open interviews at its Elkhart, Indiana, campus.. 

The boat builder — Hurricane Deck Boats, Rinker Express Cruisers, Captiva & MTX Sport Boats, Godfrey Pontoons (Sanan, Aqua Patio & Sweetwater), Polar Kraft Aluminum Fishing Boats and Parti Kraft Pontoons — is hiring 70 manufacturing positions including welders, upholsterers, sewers and fiberglass laminators. While experience is required for welding positions, on-the-job training will be provided for many of the other positions.

Jobs are available at NGG's Elkhart and Syracuse, Indiana, facilities. Hourly wages range from $10 per hour to more than $18 per hour depending on experience. Full-time health care benefit packages are also available.

"These are exciting times for Nautic Global Group, and as the demand for our products increase, we will continue to rely heavily on the strong workforce found throughout Michiana," said Doug Sexton, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Nautic Global Group.

“The boating industry and the RV industry took a huge [dive]. The numbers you’ve seen pre-2009 were probably cut in half, if not even more, so it has taken the past two or three years for us to come out of this,” marketing director Jeff Roth told WSBT, an NBC affiliate in Elkhart, where one of the plants is located. The other two are in Syracuse, Ind. 

“Most of the folks in the marine industry are experiencing these increases in retail registration, so because of that we need to keep up with consumer demand,” Roth said.

“I think slow growth is what we will be seeing the next several years,” he added. “I think all of us in the marine industry probably learned some lessons. With the number of boats we build and the inventory we put out in the field, we are now a little more controlled.”
