Specialty Fabrics Review interviews Katie Bradford, MFC, IFM of Custom Marine Canvas

News | | By:

What is your industry prediction?

Right now there is zero boat building going on. I think the cycle we’re in is going to take six or seven years before boat building is going to start recovering.

What is your business philosophy?

To recognize customers’ needs so we can design something that makes their boating safer, more comfortable and more attractive.

What is your business strength?

Our product is our strength. Also, as an avid boater I recognize what people need and want for their boats.

What is your advice for others?

Share what you know. For many of us in the marine fabrication industry, if we find a new way to do things we can’t wait to share it with the other shops.
