Armstrong Marine USA now Brix Marine
The boatbuilder will continue operating from its yard in Port Angeles, Wash.
(PORT ANGELES, Wash.) — Since 1991, Armstrong Marine USA has earned a reputation for crafting rugged aluminum catamarans and workboats. The company was founded in Canada and moved to Port Angeles, Wash., in 2001. Joining Bryton Marine Group in 2017 fortified the company’s focus on its core values and a strategic plan securing its future.
“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.
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. The company 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. The newly redefined custom recreational portfolio is in high demand, and Brix Marine is bringing this same innovative approach to other key markets.
Brix Marine will continue to grow and operate in Port Angeles, Wash.
