Less than two years after starting operations, Sportsman Boats is expanding its footprint and hiring more employees.
The company is investing $2.35 million and moving into a larger, 72,600-square-foot facility later this year. Management plans to hire 50 more employees over the next five years.
“We are pleased with the success we’ve had here in Dorchester County and we’re looking forward to growing our operations here,” Tommy Hancock, president of Sportsman Boats Manufacturing, said in a statement. “This expansion is a big step for our company. South Carolina has provided a great fit for our business and we appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials.”
Hancock, a former owner of Sea Pro Boats, and Dale Martin, former owner of Key West Boats, started Sportsman Boats in 2011.
