Skeeter Opens 43K-SF Facility, Plans 35 New Employees

Skeeter Products Inc., which manufactures high-performance fishing boats, has added a 43,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and plans to hire 35 people at 2606 U.S. 259 N. in Kilgore, TX. The new facility will churn out boat trailers.

Skeeter, which has been a fixture in Kilgore since 1972, outsourced trailer manufacturing. The company began creating prototypes for trailers in early 2017, and production is underway on the new product.
