New Fergus Falls manufacturer Go-Float and manufacturer of the year Thiele Technologies were featured at the annual Manufacturers Appreciation Breakfast this morning.

Economic Improvement Commission Executive Director Harold Stanislawski officially announced Go-Float will be coming to Fergus Falls.

Go-Float manufactures electric boats, and it will soon open a new plant in the former ShoreMaster Fabric building. The business will provide at least eight new jobs in Fergus Falls with the potential to add up to 30.

Manufacturer of the year Thiele Technologies operations manager Chuck Geris accepted the award on behalf of his employees and provided an overview of what the company does, and how it became the thriving manufacturer it is today.
