AccuDock names Mark Wilson Rowing Dock Specialist

 

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. - (October 9, 2017) -- Entrepreneur and former rowing coach Mark Wilson has been tapped to lead the Rowing Floating Dock Product Line as a Rowing Specialist at AccuDock, a leading designer and manufacturer of floating docks.

 

With more than three decades of experience in the rowing industry, Wilson has led Division I rowing programs and managed prestigious rowing clubs during his career.

 

Most recently, Wilson served as the Head Coach of the men’s and women’s rowing teams at Stetson University in DeLand, Fla. During his tenure, Wilson grew both teams to more than 30 members. He also managed the team’s 10-acre rowing complex and developed comprehensive water and land training programs for his student athletes.

 

Wilson began his career as an Assistant Rowing Coach at the University of Massachusetts. He was responsible for coordinating team logistics, budgeting and purchasing equipment in addition to his other duties.

 

Following his stint at UMass, Wilson was hired as the first-ever Head Rowing Coach for the new rowing program at Indiana University. While at IU, Wilson managed all aspects of the university’s rowing program and was responsible for building the foundation for the team’s future.

 

Wilson was then tapped as the Director of Rowing Development for the Oak Ridge Rowing Association in Oak Ridge, Tenn. where he was responsible for bringing new rowing programs for youth, adults and companies to the area.

 

He got back into coaching at the White Rock Boathouse in Dallas growing the rowing program and implementing a variety of new business strategies.

 

According to Jason Harrison, AccuDock’s general manager, Wilson brings a combination of rowing knowledge and business expertise to the company.

 

“We are excited to welcome Mark to our team. We are confident that the trusted relationships he has developed in the rowing community will help AccuDock continue to grow as a trusted leader in rowing docking systems both in the U.S. and internationally,” said Harrison. “Given his enthusiasm for the sport and past accomplishments of growing and expanding programs at every level, we believe Mark will thrive in his new role with AccuDock.”

 

Wilson’s primary responsibilities will include managing AccuDock’s presence at several upcoming regattas and U.S. rowing events as well as maintaining and growing his relationships throughout the industry on behalf of the company.

 

“I am thrilled to be working with AccuDock to help them continue to promote their product across the rowing community, said Wilson. “The sport of rowing continues to grow and there are many programs starting from scratch and expanding. Being able to help them gain access to the water with a proven, well-designed and safe product will be very exciting. I look forward to helping AccuDock grow not only around the country, but also internationally in the coming months and years.”

 

Wilson is a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston and was a member of Northeastern’s National Championship-winning rowing team. Wilson is a U.S. Rowing Level III Certified Coach.

AccuDock bolsters rowing floating dock product line

Company designed and manufactured floating docks that have been used at some of the world’s most prestigious rowing events

 

Pompano Beach, Fla. -- (October 1, 2017) – Due to overwhelming successes at major rowing events around the world, AccuDock, a family-owned, Florida-based floating dock manufacturer, has grown its rowing floating dock product line and will continue expansion into professional and collegiate rowing events around the country and internationally.

 

AccuDock has designed and manufactured floating dock systems for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as well as the World Rowing Championships (WRC) that were held in Sarasota Sept. 24-Oct. 1, the 2015 WRC in Rio de Janeiro and the 2013 WRC in South Korea.

 

AccuDock’s recently completed a one-of-a-kind rowing floating dock system at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota features the world’s first 10-lane rowing floating dock system. It is also unique in that it offers 60-foot retractable fingers, five 16’ by 80’ launch docks and a 10’ by 184’ awards dock.

 

AccuDock has also been called upon to consult and design floating docks for Div. I collegiate rowing programs around the country.

 

To lead its floating rowing dock product line, AccuDock hired veteran rowing coach Mark Wilson. Wilson brings more than 20 years experience in the rowing industry and formerly led the rowing teams at Indiana University and Stetson University, as well as several rowing clubs in the Northeast. Wilson’s goal is to ensure that top-tier rowing programs and clubs around the country are familiar with AccuDock’s capabilities and commitment to quality.

 

“AccuDock has built an excellent reputation in the rowing industry through its unique designs and quality craftsmanship,” said Wilson. “Although the company designs and manufactures floating docks for some of the most high-profile rowing events in the world, we also offer the same quality and craftsmanship to smaller programs and clubs.”

 

The company, owned and managed by father and son team John and Jason Harrison, isn't a secret in the rowing and watersports industry. Founded in 2007, AccuDock's sales and reputation have grown tremendously around the world over the years. The company’s commitment to excellence in products and customer service is a big reason for their success.

 

"We have always valued our relationship with the rowing community and are now making a concerted effort to grow our presence in the sport,” said John Harrison, AccuDock's founder and president. “We offer innovative products and designs specifically targeted for rowing events and the rowing industry.”

 

In addition to designing rowing floating dock systems, AccuDock handles an array of commercial and residential installations, including offering an ADA compliant design for kayak and canoe launch docks.

 

The company also handles large-scale government contracts, including building floating scaffolding docks used to refurbish Naval ships in locations around the world. 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 purchasing decisions.

Pompano Beach, Fla. -- (September 19, 2017) – Following huge successes at the 2016 Summer Olympics and 2015 World Rowing Championships, AccuDock, a family-owned, Florida-based floating dock manufacturer, is expanding its presence in the rowing industry by hiring top talent and designing floating dock systems for some of the most prestigious rowing events around the world.

The event will draw more than 1,500 athletes from 71 countries, 40,000 spectators and 2,000 volunteers from around the world.

 

In addition to their work for the rowing events at the 2016 Summer Olympics and World Rowing Championships in Rio de Janeiro (2015) and South Korea (2013), AccuDock has designed and manufactured floating docks for myriad large-scale rowing projects previously. They have also been called upon to consult and design floating docks for Div. I collegiate rowing programs around the country.

 

AccuDock’s installation at Nathan Benderson Park features the world’s first 10-lane rowing floating dock system. It is also unique in that it offers 60-foot retractable fingers, five 16’ by 80’ launch docks and a 10’ by 184’ awards dock.

South Florida's fastest-growing companies honored at 2016 Fast 50 Awards

Source: bizjournals.com   Business leaders gathered Thursday at the South Florida Business Journal's Fast 50 event at Hyatt Regency Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale for the list unveiling of the 50 fastest-growing companies in the tri-county area.   As one of our most popular lists comes to life, we opened this private event to the public this year so you could meet first hand the companies ranked by percentage of revenue growth over the past three years. Fast 50 Fast 50 2 Fast 50 1
ACCUDOCK 2016 INC 5000 RANK
A DJI_0019 edita med The company: AccuDock designs, builds and installs a wide variety of floating docks and work platforms for residential, commercial and government use, as well as for rowing and boating venues in the United States and overseas. Based in Pompano Beach, AccuDock supplied the impressive array of rowing docks being used at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, as well as docks used at the 2015 World Junior Rowing Championships in Rio, and the 2013 World Rowing Championships in South Korea. “We were watching the Olympic rowing competition on TV,” said John Harrison, AccuDock’s founder and president. “We felt so proud to see our equipment there. It’s an honor to be part of the Olympics.” One of the fastest-growing companies in South Florida’s marine sector, AccuDock also designs and builds floating docks for marinas, public parks, residences, school rowing teams and individual jet skis, as well as work platforms for painting and refurbishing big yachts and ships. “We build everything in house and all our parts come from suppliers in the U.S,” said Jason Harrison, the founder’s son and AccuDock’s general manager. “Many of our products are custom made and we supply customers all over the world.” AccuDock sells docks, parts and accessories directly to customers and works with a network of distributors. Prices range from about $1,200 for a kayak dock to $30,000 for a residential dock to millions of dollars for large systems used in international sporting events. The docks are produced with marine-grade, welded aluminum frames built around a tough outer shell filled with buoyant EPS plastic foam. Getting started: John Harrison, who grew up on the east coast of Massachusetts, moved to Florida in the early 1990s and saw a need for floating work platforms and other floating docks in South Florida’s burgeoning marine industry. Harrison set up AccuDock in 2007. His son, Jason Harrison, joined AccuDock in 2009 after he received a degree in business from Florida State University. Together, they grew the company from five employees in 2009 to 30 today. The difference: “What has enabled us to grow is our ability to build custom products that other companies do not make,” Jason said. AccuDock works closely with customers wherever they’re located, guaranteeing consistently high-quality products and customer satisfaction. Sales: “Every year we’ve seen substantial growth in sales,” Jason said. Net sales in 2015 were just under $5 million and projections for full-year 2016 are more than $6 million, he said. About 50 percent of sales typically go to customers in Florida, while the rest go to other parts of the U.S., and to international clients in Brazil, South Korea, India, Japan and other countries. Competitors: EZ Dock, Connect-A-Dock, GatorDock, others. Glitch: When the company was starting out, it took on a job at a property that was too exposed to wind, making it difficult to properly stabilize and use floating docks. “We learned that we shouldn’t make sales to certain locations,” Jason said. Analyst: “AccuDock is a local company that has an impact on the global marine sector,” said Phil Purcell, executive director of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, the Fort Lauderdale-based trade group that represents more than 500 marine-related companies in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties and owns the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The company has supplied floating docks and equipment to the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, the 2013 World Rowing Championship in South Korea, and other domestic and international clients, Purcell said. “Their reach demonstrates how important South Florida’s $11.5 billion recreational marine sector is to the world. AccuDock could have located anywhere, but they chose to build their business here.” What customers say: “We purchased a floating dock with the capacity for 24 kayaks for our members, said Larry Demme, general manager at The Yacht & Racquet Club of Boca Raton. “They came out here to make sure that what we were thinking about would work for us,” he said. The club chose AccuDock over a competitor. The dock was custom-designed to fit precisely into an existing area and can be easily used at both high and low tide. “They did a fantastic job,” Demme said. “They are very honest and professional, met our time line and kept us informed. We do business with a lot of contractors, and when we find a good one, we keep them.” AccuDock sells to several dealers/distributors in the U.S. and overseas, and their largest is Custom Float Services, a major marine supply company in South Portland, Maine. “We’ve been a distributor for AccuDock since 2010,” said Dale Dyer, who handles marketing for Custom Float Services. “We’ve purchased and installed most of their products, from 8 feet by 8 feet swim platforms for private customers to 12 feet by 120 feet custom rowing dock systems for educational facilities and municipalities,” Dyer said. “We stock a lot of AccuDock inventory products, however, much of what they provide is custom-made. AccuDock products allow us to get closer to the customer’s needs and wants,” he said. “Their products and service are top notch.” Challenges and outlook: With demand for its products constantly increasing, “Our biggest challenge is to maintain growth at an acceptable rate and not grow too fast,” Jason said. The company is committed to making the highest quality products and offering the best customer service. “We’ve turned down some projects,” he said. “We know what we’re doing and we can continue to grow, but at a more moderate rate.”

  John and Jason Harrison know there’s no such thing as overnight success. Their company, AccuDock, was established by John more than nine years ago when he moved to Florida and recognized a need for floating work platforms and commercial docks. When Jason joined him as General Manager in 2009 after graduating from Florida State University, the father-son team upheld three main components they felt were critical to steadily building growth and success: ensure exceptional customer service and satisfaction with a high-quality product that is made in America, empower the team of AccuDock employees, and provide customized solutions to every customer’s needs.   Over the years they increasingly built a loyal client base, expanded AccuDock’s workforce, and most recently set their sights on winning a bid to provide docks at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. They spent more than a year planning and preparing for the opportunity, even going so far as to prebuild three of the nine containers-worth of the dock system that would be needed to accommodate the rowing teams from around the world. It was a risk, but one that would actually pay off.   Despite the Olympic Committee’s initial procrastination, things happened very quickly after a representative came to visit AccuDock’s facility and meet with John and Jason on a Friday afternoon. They spent about three hours talking about the company’s history and experience and confirming they had the capability of shipping the docks in time to meet the strict deadline for the upcoming test event. The representative stepped out briefly to make a telephone call, then came back in and shook hands on the deal. John and Jason were elated. They had known the competition was down to just one other company, and convinced themselves that it was validation enough to just be considered to present their products on the global stage. When John asked why AccuDock had won, the Olympic Committee representative said simply, “quality of product.”   Everything else was put on hold and by the end of the following week, 20% of the project was built, loaded into two shipping containers, and immediately sent to Rio. The Harrisons called their existing clients with orders in various stages of completion and explained the situation, then they began the complicated task of constructing six different complete docks. The full Olympic Committee added some challenges with increased interaction, and changing plans and configurations multiple times, but within 31 days they sent Charlie Everett to the event site to supervise the strategic installation. The entire system was completely installed five days prior to the test event and in time for use in the 2015 Junior World Rowing Championship. The docks are currently being used for trials in advance of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, which begin August 5th.   AccuDock continues to grow its business, expanding its commercial projects into additional markets like Tampa and Sarasota, not-to-mention India and Russia. They’ve even partnered with Polaritas, another father-son duo from Hungary that manufactures and sells timing and starting mechanisms used in rowing and other watersport races, in order to offer turn-key solutions in the United States and Europe. They have also begun preliminary discussions with the 2020 Olympic Committee in Tokyo. Though John and Jason continue to make forward progress with their family-owned business, they always manage to keep realistic expectations and never sacrifice quality for haste.

February 2016
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.

Two father-son owned companies from halfway

around the world collaborate to revolutionize watersports

      

            Pompano Beach, Fla. -- (January 22, 2016) – For a family-owned and operated Florida-based dock-maker, the term ‘Made in America’ is more than a catchy marketing slogan; it’s a daily pledge to its customers and employees.

AccuDock designs, builds and ships a wide-range of floating docks to customers around the world, so their pledge ensures a commitment to quality unsurpassed in the industry.

The growing company, owned and managed by father and son team John and Jason Harrison, isn't a secret in the rowing and watersports industry. Founded in 1993, AccuDock's sales and reputation have grown tremendously around the world over the years. The company’s commitment to excellence in products and customer service is a big reason for their success.

They have also been called upon to consult and design floating docks for Div. I collegiate rowing programs around the country.

"Our company takes the words ‘Made in America’ seriously and works to deliver quality craftsmanship and outstanding customer service while still being competitive on price,” said John Harrison, AccuDock's founder and president. "While other companies may be forced to cut costs by purchasing much cheaper products internationally, we are steadfast in our goal of ensuring that virtually every part and product we use comes from the U.S.A.”

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.

According to Jason Harrison, AccuDock's general manager, delivering on this stage and at this level takes a total team effort.

"We pride ourselves on using American-made products for virtually everything we design and build, so we look at this as an opportunity to showcase our many partner companies around the U.S. as well," said Harrison. "Many international companies with whom we work look at the ‘Made in America’ stamp on our products as a statement of quality and a higher standard.”

Polaritas and Accudock Collaborate

 

Two father-son owned companies from halfway

around the world collaborate to revolutionize watersports

      

            Pompano Beach, Fla. -- (January 6, 2016) – Two successful family-owned and operated companies in different time zones and from vastly different cultures will collaborate to offer a streamlined package designed to benefit rowing, canoeing and other watersports around the world.

AccuDock, a Florida-based floating dock-maker and Hungarian company Polaritas, a company that designs starting systems for rowing and other watersports races, will work together to create a ‘one-stop shop’ to offer a turnkey package for organizations seeking to host rowing and other watersports events.

Both AccuDock and Polaritas have had significant success in the rowing world.  The companies have provided their respective products to high-profile international rowing events.  Polaritas has provided starting systems for rowing events at the past three Summer Olympics and AccuDock was the supplier for the rowing docks in Rio de Janeiro for the 2015 World Junior Championships.

Ironically, both companies are led by father-son duos:  John and Jason Harrison at AccuDock and Jozsef and Laszlo Grand from Polaritas.

“We had heard many positive things about Polaritas in our interaction with rowing organizations primarily internationally,” said John Harrison, AccuDock’s founder and president.  “Once we met with Jozsef and Laszlo and learned more about their company, we were convinced that our collaboration would not only benefit our respective organizations, but potentially the sport of rowing as well.”

According to Jozsef Grand, Polaritas was founded in 1984 and began developing its prototype Automatic Starting System in 1997 following a request from an employee for assistance with his son’s upcoming canoe race.  The company spent the next five years testing and refining the product.  After successful implementation in a variety of rowing events, Swiss-Timing contracted with Polaritas to provide starting systems for the rowing competition at the Summer Olympics in Athens.  Polaritas has since installed their products in 35 countries around the world.

“We feel a great sense of synergy with AccuDock and share the same commitment to quality and customer service,” said Grand.  “One of our collective objectives is to take our experience from Europe and other international destinations and work to enhance the sport of rowing the in U.S.”

AccuDock isn't a secret in the rowing and watersports industry.  Founded in 1993, the company’s sales and reputation have grown tremendously around the world over the years.

The company has designed and built floating docks for large-scale projects previously, including the 2013 World Rowing Championships in South Korea, Oklahoma City Boathouse and Nathan Benderson State Park in Sarasota, just to name a few.  They have also been called upon to consult and design floating docks for Div.
