Manufacturer of the Year!
Some of the Nautique Team after winning Manufacturer of the Year!
Last night was a big night for our production team as Correct Craft and our Nautique brand was chosen as the manufacturer of the year by the Manufacturers Association of Central Florida (MACF). Our team was very excited since this is a coveted and prestigious award that in the past has been won by respected companies including, Lockheed Martin, Siemens, Northup Grumman and Mitsubishi Power Systems.
For going on eighty six years Correct Craft has been know as a premier builder of quality boats. We are proud of our heritage but I am particularly proud of what our
team has done these past few years.
About four years ago we made the decision to build on our legendary heritage and our team began an improvement journey which one respected industry magazine called “an aggressive improvement path the likes of which the marine industry has never seen.” The journey has included significant training of our employees in the latest manufacturing techniques that even included training employees instead of sending them home when the boat market went into significant decline in early 2009. The journey also included the development of new processes that ensure our boats are built in the highest quality way possible and included a focus on manufacturing in a “green” manner that won Nautique an award from theEPA for making improvements that had a very positive environmental impact.
Everything we have done has been heavily focused on a continual improvement in quality including the implementation of a wireless quality system that is the best in the industry and used by premier auto companies around the world. At Nautique, we are all about quality.
While we enjoy getting better and continuous improvement is an important part of our culture, the best part of these improvements has been the impact on our customers. We enjoy getting awards but they are insignificant compared to the enjoyment we get from building our customers the world’s best boats. Our team enjoys spending time on the water just like our customers so we are constantly focused on how to make things better for the people who buy our boats.
So we celebrate for a minute but then we are quickly back to work trying to get even better. Not to improve for ourselves but for those who buy a Nautique.
If you are interested in owning the industry’s best boat contact the Nautique dealer closest to you; we would love to have you in our family.
Enjoy the Nautique life!
