Prop manufacturer, Turning Point Propellers, is moving its marketing, sales and engineering operations from its Chicago, IL facility to a new office in Jacksonville, FL. The move to the new 3,000 square-foot office/lab/warehouse will take place on July 1. However, the company's product will continue to ship from its 75,000 square-foot warehouse facility in Chicago.
“Florida's warmer climate and heavy concentration of boat manufacturers facilitates a year-round product development cycle,” explains Ron Bailey, Turning Point Propellers VP of Sales and Marketing. “This will result in faster introductions of industry-leading designs, such as our latest Hustler Four Blade propeller. We are updating our prototyping and engineering resources and capabilities at the same time in our design studio. Turning Point is also pursuing R&D opportunities with nearby University of Florida and Florida State University engineering departments.'
Turning Point Propellers recently celebrated its 15th anniversary in May.
