A boom in the boat industry has increased the demand for nautical manufacturers who make pontoons and deck boats.
For the past several years the boat industry has enjoyed twenty-plus percent growth. To keep up with demands, Nautic Global Group held a job fair earlier Monday.
The company plans to hire more than 100 people in Syracuse and Elkhart, Indiana over the next few months.
It is looking for fiberglass specialists, assembly line workers, riveters and more.
Nautic said it is looking for applicants with experience, however they can train people on-the-job.
“Most of our activity for manufacturing is domestic,” said Steven Ott, director of human resources for the group. “We sell product internationally, and we do sell pontoons and duck boats internationally also.”
All applications are done online, so if you were unable to make it to the job fair you can still apply on the company's website.
