PULASKI, Wis. (AP) -- A northeastern Wisconsin yacht builder has won a multi-million dollar Dutch contract and plans to hire 150 people.
Marquis Yachts, in Pulaski, has struck a deal with VanDutch Marine in Holland. VanDutch America president Chris Holtzheuser says the initial order is for 420 boats.
Marquis expects to hire as many as 70 people in the next month or two and will add up to 150 within the next year. President Robert VanGrunsven says hiring has already begun.
WLUK-TV says Marquis Yachts was formerly Carver Yachts, owned by Genmar Holdings. Genmar filed for bankruptcy in 2009 because of the recession. The boat yard became solvent with new owners in 2010 under the Marquis name.
