Pompano Beach-based AccuDock poised for continued growth in 2016
Pompano Beach, Fla. — (February 13, 2016) — From humble beginnings, a father and son owned floating dock-maker has made its mark within the global watersports and marine industries.
AccuDock, a family-owned and operated company that designs and builds floating docks for rowing facilities and competitions, marinas and private residences, has experienced tremendous growth in the watersports and rowing industry.
Operated by father and son team John and Jason Harrison, AccuDock was established in 2007 with a mission to build its docks using only American-made products and to deliver outstanding customer service for every project.
The company has designed and built floating docks for large-scale projects including the World Rowing Championships held in South Korea in 2013 and the World Junior Rowing Championships held in Rio de Janeiro in 2015, the Oklahoma City Boathouse and Nathan Benderson State Park in Sarasota, just to name a few. In addition, AccuDock supplied the rowing docks for the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro. They have also been called upon to consult and design floating docks for Division I collegiate rowing programs around the country.
“We are honored and grateful to have been a part of some of the most prestigious rowing events in the world,” said John Harrison, AccuDock’s founder and president. “Our team has worked hard to get to this point and we look forward to continuing to provide top-notch products on the worldwide stage.”
AccuDock builds everything in-house and has made a commitment to only using American-made materials and products. As an example of their commitment, AccuDock purchases hundreds of thousands of pounds of aluminum each year and recently had the opportunity to buy from a Chinese company at half the cost, but declined, citing the need to honor their American-made pledge. All raw materials processed by AccuDock are made in the United States.
An exciting new development for the company in 2016, AccuDock will collaborate with Polaritas, a Hungarian company that designs starting systems for rowing and other watersports races, to create a ‘one-stop shop’ offering a turn-key package for organizations seeking to host rowing and other watersports events.
Polaritas has installed their products at a number of high-profile international rowing events including the past four Summer Olympics.
According to Jason Harrison, AccuDock’s General Manager, working closely with a company that has such tremendous international contacts will help expand the company’s reach to a new audience.
“Polaritas has an excellent reputation globally and has provided starting systems for rowing events in more than 35 countries,” said Harrison. “Our companies have complementary skill sets and we feel this collaboration will provide a turn-key package that will revolutionize the manner in which rowing events are staged.”
In addition to designing for rowing events, AccuDock handles an array of commercial and residential installations, including offering ADA compliant design installations for kayak and canoe launch docks.
The company also handles large-scale government contracts, including building docks used to refurbish Naval ships in Tokyo. AccuDock’s GSA contract gives the highest discounted rate for government project purchases and provides a full product catalogue for direct purchasing by governmental agencies. Additionally, AccuDock is ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certified, which means it meets the rigorous international standards on which many global companies base their purchasing decisions.
