Boatbuilding Legacy Continues with Launch of New Brand – VEXUS™
Legendary Roots Run Deep in New Fishing Boat Brand
FLIPPIN, AR (December 1, 2017) On December 1st, some fifty years after legendary boatbuilder, Forrest L. Wood pulled his first hull from the mold, an announcement for a new generation of fishing boats was made at his Outdoor Sports Gallery in Flippin, Arkansas. Surrounded by decades of fishing history and an enthusiastic crowd of anglers, employees, media, and other well-known personalities, the president of the new firm, Keith Daffron, unveiled the name, directions, and location of the much-anticipated company.
During the ribbon-cutting portion of the event, attendees were officially introduced to the new headquarters for the brand. The company’s state-of-the-art facilities are currently under construction with an anticipated move-in date of spring 2018. The 115,000 square-foot manufacturing plant will specialize in the production of both aluminum and fiberglass fishing boats as well as custom-matched trailers. Capitalizing on advanced technologies, proprietary designs, and environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes, the VEXUS brand will also benefit from a highly accomplished employee family. In fact, many of the company’s craftsmen are familiar faces, having been a driving force of ideas and innovation in the marine industry for decades. Highlighting that point, AEDC Executive Director Mike Preston said, “Sportsmen have long relied on the talent and success of the industry professionals behind the new Vexus brand. We’re excited that the experts behind Vexus are making Flippin the home of their new corporate headquarters.”
The ultra-modern manufacturing plant for VEXUS fishing boats and trailers is located at 727 West Industrial Park Road in the group’s long-time hometown of Flippin, Arkansas.
