Humminbird®, a leading global innovator of marine electronics products, this week announced a new expansion plan of its Eufaula plant to meet ongoing strong demand for its technologies.
“Humminbird has grown significantly over the last six years and we expect it to continue to grow,” said Craig Packard, General Manager. “To increase our capacity to meet future demand, we are investing in growing our workforce and continuing to expand our facilities.”
The company plans to add 77 new positions by early fall, with direct assembly workers accounting for approximately half of the new positions. Additionally, Humminbird is recruiting for technicians, supervisors, and positions in shipping, IT, HR, and technical support. A sign-on bonus is offered for all new positions.
Additionally, the company is investing in the expansion of its Eufaula facility to include a multimillion dollar 27,400 square-foot expansion project slated to start this fall. The expansion will increase the production and assembly areas by more than 25 percent, and the investment will also include significant purchases of new capital equipment.
This new expansion project follows a 17,000-square foot addition, which increased the warehouse space by 40 percent, that was recently completed in May 2021.
