Port Angeles, Wash., based aluminum catamaran and workboat specialist Armstrong Marine USA has a new name: Brix Marine.
“Our team has developed strong momentum with our boat portfolios and customers. As we look to the future, Brix Marine will honor the legacy we have built and move beyond to deliver exceptional custom boats,” said Perry Knudson, Managing Director.
Founded in Canada in 1991, the company moved to Port Angeles in 2001 and became part of the Bryton Marine Group in 2017.
Brix literally means the scientific measure of sweetness in liquid. This translates well to the high-performance boats the company is known for.
“Brix is more than a sweet riding hull,” said Knudson. “Our custom projects begin with the first communication and the relationship continues after the boat is delivered. Brix is committed to an owner-centric approach.”
Brix Marine has another important target. “We want to be the best place to work in our community,” said Knudson.
Brix employs master level craftsmen in the disciplines required to build welded aluminum boats and says it invests in defining career paths and training employees to gain the skills needed to advance in their fields.
The Brix team will broaden and diversify its portfolio of welded aluminum boats, known as being “first in cats.”
The company reports that itsnewly redefined custom recreational portfolio is in high demand, and Brix Marine says it is bringing this same innovative approach to other key markets.
“Our luxury water taxi designs are raising the standards for passenger vessels as seen with the recent launch for Liberty National Golf Club,” said Perry Knudson. “We have a lot of exciting things on the horizon. This new identity represents who we are and where we’re going.”
