Changes are happening in the management of a boat builder in Beaufort County.
Liberty Associates has announced it is no longer providing management services to American Marine Holdings, which includes the boat brands Donzi, Fountain and Pro-Line. The three lines are manufactured out the former Fountain plant in Chocowinity.
A press release also reports "Liberty’s affiliate has transferred its nominee ownership interest in AMH to FCC, LCC d/b/a First Capital, a portfolio company of HIG Capital. Liberty has enjoyed its part in steering the company through the very difficult times that the boat manufacturing industry has experienced recently, and wishes FCC continued success with AMH in the future."
There is no word how or if this change will impact the Beaufort County boat plant.
An e-mailed press release referred all questions to John Walker at the Beaufort County facility.
WITN left a message for Walker Friday afternoon. As of 6:00 p.m., that call had not been returned.
