SeaDek Marine Products announced that the company will relocate its production operations, currently located in Rockledge, Fla., to a 72,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the same city.

The move comes after years of growth and expansion that necessitated multiple off-site facilities to meet the growing need for machine space and material storage. The move will bring all operations under one roof and allow room for expansion in the years to come. The move will also allow SeaDek to continue to bring good manufacturing and technology jobs to the Brevard County area.

"Prior to the recession we were just getting SeaDek off the ground and saw immediate and substantial growth. The economic down turn affected us just like everyone else in the industry but things have turned around and we are right back on track," said Co-Owner and VP of Marketing, Jason Gardner.

One of the first new uses for the additional floor space will be a drive-in custom factory installation service. Customers will drive their trailered boats into one of the facility's entrance ramps where trained SeaDek personnel will template, design and install custom non-skid kits. The added facility space will also allow SeaDek to expand their custom installer program. 

Several weeks of retrofitting and upgrades are expected going into the New Year. Work will include roof repairs, lighting efficiency evaluation, server upgrades, three phase electric service, office and workspace modifications, rail spur restoration, trash and recycling services as well as safety and security upgrades.
