Chaparral Boats will expand its existing facility, creating 50 new jobs in Berrien County.
“This expansion by Chaparral Boats underscores how well Georgia’s No. 1 business climate supports existing businesses,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “With access to a widely recognized logistics infrastructure and a highly-trained workforce, Georgia offers the tools necessary to keep companies competitive in the United States and in the global marketplace.”
Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Chaparral and its subsidiary Robalo are renowned world leaders in family sport boats and recreational fishing boats.
