Bertram's New Home in Florida
Bertram Yacht recently held a press conference to announce the relocation of its production facility from Miami to a new state-of the art facility in Merritt Island, Florida. The press event was attended by local, state and national media along with four state representatives, Bertram vendors and employees. The press conference included enthusiastic wishes of success and remarks of appreciation for remaining in Florida from both state and local representatives along with insight provided by the President of Bertram Yacht, Alton Herndon, on why Merritt Island was selected.
“We searched over 30 locations and Merritt Island proved to be the best of the best”, said Alton Herndon. We specifically chose Merritt Island because of the state-of-the art boat manufacturing facility and marina which is situated on a 37-acre site and provides significant opportunity for future expansion of the Bertram brand; a wonderful community with great employees that have boat building experience or can easily be taught boat building skills; and the fact that it allows us to continue our history in the state of Florida”, added Herndon.
In all, over 160 individuals were in attendance to witness this historic press conference, tour the facility, and enjoy a luncheon together.
