Skeeter Boats announces new trailer factory
KILGORE, Texas — Skeeter Boats has announced the establishment of a new trailer factory.
Skeeter Built trailers will provide 100 percent of Skeeter boat production starting in the third quarter of this year, according to a news release from the company. As part of the expansion, Skeeter will add up to 35 new employees who will be based in the 43,000-square-foot trailer factory in Kilgore.
Production levels for the new Skeeter Built trailers will match boat production levels, ensuring that each Skeeter boat and trailer are completed at the same time, the release said. All 2018 Skeeter Bass and Deep-V models will have a Skeeter Built trailer manufactured in the new Skeeter facility; all Bay boat aluminum trailers will be transitioned within the next 12 months, the company said.
Skeeter will leverage in-house designers for innovative customization techniques, and the Skeeter Built factory will also incorporate Digital wheel and axle alignment technology, it said in the release.
The Skeeter Built trailers are scheduled to hit the market this summer and will offer an industry-exclusive limited lifetime frame warranty, the company said.
