EUFAULA, Alabama — Humminbird, a leading maker of marine electronics products, officially launched construction work on a multimillion-dollar expansion project at its Eufaula facility to allow the company to meet strong consumer demand for its technologies.
The expansion project will increase the production and assembly areas at the Alabama plant by 25%. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2022.
In a September announcement, Humminbird said it plans to add 77 new positions by early fall, with direct assembly workers accounting for approximately half of the new positions.
