KCS International, Inc., the parent company of Cruisers Yachts and Rampage Sport Fishing Yachts, rehired 100 employees to work on new orders for both brands. As the company began the year with 100 employees, the upturn in the economy and increased sales in domestic, Asian and Latin America markets have made it possible for former employees to return.

“The growth we have already seen this year has us very optimistic,” said Mark Pedersen, president of KCS International, Inc. “The months ahead are looking quite bright as we re-establish ourselves as one of the world’s leading yacht manufacturers. Because of our projections, we want to encourage people looking for work to consider joining the Cruisers Yachts and Rampage family. We always welcome resumes from skilled workers.”

New yacht orders have expanded production, creating a bit of backlog for vessels. This growth has been met with certain supplier lead time issues. “We are happy to have these types of challenges knowing we can work through them,” said Pedersen.
