EUFAULA, Alabama — Humminbird, a leading maker of marine electronics products, announced Tuesday that it is creating over 75 jobs at its plant in Barbour County through an expansion project that will help the company meet strong consumer demand for its depth finders.
“Humminbird has grown significantly over the last six years and we expect it to continue to grow,” said Craig Packard, general manager of the company’s Alabama facility. “To increase our capacity to meet future demand, we are investing in growing our workforce and continuing to expand our facilities.”
The company said it plans to add 77 new positions by early fall, with direct assembly workers accounting for approximately half of the new positions. Humminbird is also recruiting for technicians, supervisors, and positions in shipping, IT, human resources, and technical support.
