Meeco Sullivan Continues to Expand Production Capabilities

Since Sullivan Flotation Systems and Atlantic Meeco merged almost two years ago, the mission for the new MEECO SULLIVAN business was to grow by winning more than its fair share of new contracts while maintaining the highest product quality and customer service standards. The revamped management and sales teams, the streamlined production processes, the new equipment and highly skilled employees and the commitment to total customer satisfaction are making that growth a reality. Ralph Morley, National Sales Manager for Meeco Sullivan, stated that “when we became Meeco Sullivan we had the most capacity of any fresh or saltwater marina manufacturer in the industry and our shared vision and purpose coupled with the major investments we’ve made in our production facilities are really paying off.”

These growth plans have included adding significant line workers and longer shifts at the Warwick facility and these additional capabilities at the McAlester, OK facility:

  • Added eight new welding machines and a new plasma cutter
  • Doubling the capacity of its frame line
  • Adding an additional assembly line
  • Adding an additional accessories line
  • Current production schedule includes six days a week with four 12 hour shifts and two 8 hour shifts

2016 was a record year for MEECO SULLIVAN as it won over 200 new contracts and includes the largest marina contract ever awarded by the New York State Park System for the 1063 slip Lake Erie Marina. In addition, contracts have been won and are in production for:

  • Wolf Creek Marina- Nancy, KY
  • Dale Hollow State Park Marina—Burkesville, KY
  • North Shore Marina—Austin, TX
  • East 55th Marina—Cleveland, OH
  • Point Venture Marina—Leander, TX
  • Port Liberte Marina—Jersey City, NJ
  • Haven Harbour Marina—Rock Hall, MD
  • Norton’s Shipyard & Marina, Greenwich, RI

The largest of these jobs has been the Lake Erie Marina, which includes a total of 13 floating docks with 1063 slips of various sizes. Seven docks have already been delivered and installation has begun with completion expected for early spring but final installation will be dependent on winter weather.

As Ralph Morley also noted, “Given our expanded capabilities and enormous capacity, we have been able to meet all agreed upon delivery dates and are well positioned to comfortably handle our forecasted work load for new contracts in 2017.”
