White River debuts expanded Bolivar operation

Posted online

White River Marine Group, the marine manufacturing division of Bass Pro Shops, has started producing Tracker boats at a former warehouse it purchased last year.

The 101,000-square-foot building doubles White River's footprint in Bolivar, according to a news release. Along with plans to construct an adjacent building at the site, the company is slated to create 250 new full-time jobs when the operation reaches full production this summer.

“This expansion speaks to the high quality of our boats and the ongoing pursuit of excellence from our entire team,” said Craig Bach, Tracker’s vice president of plant operations in Bolivar, in the release.

The former warehouse building is located about 4 miles from the company's existing Bolivar plant that opened in 1988. Along with the building, White River last year purchased 42 adjacent acres from Ozarks Ridgerunner IV LLC, according to past reporting.
