Lexington Pontoons has added 80 jobs after it opened a new facility in Americus, Georgia. The builder relocated from North Carolina. The pontoon boat builder’s line of boats ranges from 15ft-27ft.

The Georgia town has builders that include Caravelle Powerboat, Razor, Interceptor and Key Largo.

The move from North Carolina was sponsored by the Sumter Development Authority. “Lexington Pontoon will expand operations and provide additional jobs for Sumter County,” says Barbara Grogan, executive director of the Sumter Development Authority, in a statement.

Lexington held a job fair at a local technical college last week to fill jobs in its new production facilities.
