Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats, a local custom boat manufacturing and design company, is expanding its operations and recently had a groundbreaking ceremony in Cape Coral at the site of its new 30,000-square-foot production facility.

“Southwest Florida has been home to Nor-Tech and our families for decades and we could not be more thrilled to be able to build more boats and see more people getting out on the water,” Nor-Tech CEO and Co-Founder Trond Schou said. “We are excited to be growing and to expand our footprint in Cape Coral and the local waterways. It means a lot that we are helping to grow a love of power boating and help our local community by providing more jobs and steady revenue in the area as well as continue to expand our commitment to philanthropic and educational efforts. It truly is our love of boats and our community that makes Southwest Florida home.”

Nor-Tech High Performance Boats was born in Cape Coral as two close friends Schou and Nils Johnsen developed their own brand.

Nor-Tech opened its doors in the Cape in 1991 and is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2021. It started off with just 10,000 square feet and has now amassed more than 170,000 square feet of production and operating space, and more than 200 employees. Nor-Tech has additional production sites located in North Fort Myers and St. Augustine.

The new production facility will be located approximately 500 feet down the road from Nor-Tech’s headquarters in the North Cape Industrial Park. The expanded facility will allow Nor-Tech to hire an additional 200 employees, official said.

Contractors and permits are in place, with plans to open doors as early as the first quarter of 2023.
