Hiring event at yard today

Kingfisher Boats has completed an expansion to its manufacturing facility and is adding staff to both keep up with demand and move into larger boats.

The Canadian boat builder produces 34 models heavy-gauge, welded aluminum and is adding the 31-foot GFX Offshore for the 2019 model year.

“The move to bigger boats is popular as they allow us to add the family features while retaining the core fishing features that are critically important to our buyers,” Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Delaney told the Vernon Morning Star.

The British Columbia-based Kingfisher employs 150 people, and is hosting a hiring event at its “Center of Excellence” manufacturing plant today in the hope of adding 15 new staff to accommodate the growth.
