Rockledge, FL - Today SeaDek Marine Products announced that the company will relocate its production operations, currently located in Rockledge, Florida, to a 72,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the same city.
The move comes after years of growth and expansion that necessitated multiple off-site facilities to meet the growing need for machine space and material storage. The move will bring all operations under one roof and allow room for expansion in the years to come. The move will also allow SeaDek to continue to bring good manufacturing and technology jobs to the Brevard County area.
"Prior to the recession we were just getting SeaDek off the ground and saw immediate and substantial growth. The economic down turn affected us just like everyone else in the industry, but things have turned around and we are right back on track," said co-owner and VP of Marketing, Jason Gardner.
One of the first new uses for the additional floor space will be a drive-in custom factory installation service. Customers will drive their trailered boats into one of the facility's entrance ramps where trained SeaDek personnel will template, design and install custom non-skid kits. The added facility space will also allow SeaDek to expand their custom installer program.
Several weeks of retrofitting and upgrades are expected going into the New Year. Work will include roof repairs, lighting efficiency evaluation, server upgrades, three phase electric service, office and workspace modifications, rail spur restoration, trash and recycling services as well as safety and security upgrades.
SeaDek manufactures a wide range of marine products for OEM boat builders, after-market customers and marine retailers. SeaDek non-skid materials offer safe and comfortable alternatives to molded-in non-skid, paint-on textures and other marine traction products currently available. Made in the USA from UV protected non-absorbent foam, SeaDek features an innovative, textured micro-dot surface for added non-slip characteristics or a unique brushed faux teak finish.
Formulated with an acrylic based high-bond 3M™pressure sensitive adhesive, SeaDek's robust, peel-and-stick application makes it easy to install and requires no mounting of hardware. Easy to clean and highly stain resistant, the product also provides protection for boat surfaces, especially in high traffic areas as seen on the tender.
In addition to the Marine Industry, SeaDek is actively expanding its product offering into other markets such as automotive, pool & spa, and action sports to name a few.
