MIDWAY, AR, July 28, 2011: Legend Boats LTD today announced the purchase of a new 75,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility located in North Central Arkansas. The facility is set to house all production and operations of the company, and will completely replace the current factory.
Since inception in 2002, Legend Boats has seen incredible customer response, driving the demand of Legend Boats to an all time high. “Sales of our boats are through the roof, and we just can’t keep up with the demand in our current facility the way we’d like to; we need more space.” said President Randy Qualls. Legend Boats currently resides in a 20,000 square foot facility in Midway, AR and produces approximately 300 boats per year.
“I’m thrilled about our transition into the new facility.” claimed Lou Ovalle, Legend Boats’ Plant Manager. “I’ve been in the bass boat industry for over 25 years and I’ve never seen a facility like the new Legend Boats plant. It’s going to afford us the opportunity to be the absolute best we can be, both in terms of producing the absolute highest quality product on the market, and maximizing our efficiency in getting boats to our dealers and customers.”
In nearly 10 years of business, Legend Boats has experienced tremendous success, and the outlook for the future is even greater. Current production schedules have lead times at nearly 16 weeks on new orders due to overwhelming demand, so the new manufacturing facility is an absolute necessity.
The new facility is located just minutes away from the current Legend factory in Midway, AR, and provides the same excellent location in the heart of the bass boat-building universe just outside of the town of Mountain Home. Historically known for its bass boat building roots and incredibly experienced labor force, the Mountain Home area has been and will continue to be a perfect location for Legend Boats.
