Covington Manufacturer hosting Ribbon Cutting to Celebrate New Facility

Covington, TN – Local amphibious vehicle manufacturer Hydratrek, Inc. is celebrating a recent expansion with a ribbon cutting ceremony on October 25th, 2016 at 12:00pm at their Covington, TN facility located at 1211 Hope Street. Hydratrek manufactures high-quality amphibious vehicles that are in demand by first responders, utility companies, oil & gas contractors, military personnel and outdoor enthusiasts for providing access to wetlands, flood zones, and other hard-to-reach areas.

Hydratrek’s new 157,000 square foot facility better equips the company to continue its trajectory of growth and allow for future expansion. Several research and development projects are currently underway, and Hydratrek seeks to further enhance their products and markets.

Attending the event will be Hydratrek’s Japanese partner, Tohatsu Corporation. This partnership is enabling Hydratrek to access Japanese markets and capitalize on Tohatsu’s global customer base.

In addition to this international partnership, Hydratrek is growing domestically. Recently, the company acquired another amphibious vehicle manufacturer, PFM Manufacturing, Inc. and their product, Land Tamer. This move gains the company access to U.S. military opportunities and may provide a smaller-scale amphibious vehicle for the recreational market.

Seeking to further expand into the recreational market, Hydratrek, Inc. recently began a co-branding initiative with Drake Waterfowl Systems, a leader in the hunting apparel market. Hydratrek is the two-year title sponsor of Drake’s Migration Nation, a television program on the Sportsman Channel. 

“We at Hydratrek know that we have a product unlike anybody in the world,” said company President Allan Rose. “It has a place in so many market sectors, and we look forward to continued business development and growth. We are very proud to host our Japanese partner at this ribbon cutting, and we are excited about our future prospects in other international markets.”
