Last week, Confluence Outdoor and its high quality, American-made canoes and kayaks represented South Carolina on AOL’s This Built America editorial series.
Some surprising details include:
- One of the perks of employment is access to over 100 free kayaks and canoes that team members can take out for free to use on the water.
- Confluence can make a new prototype in just a day—something that used to take up to six months.
- Confluence re-uses excess plastic shavings from canoes and kayaks to make other parts.
- Their CEO, Sue Rechner, was the CEO of Victorinox Swiss Army before joining the company and turning it around.
- Confluence’s fastest growing kayak business are boats designed for the kayak angler market.
Confluence Outdoor joins a national movement in This Built America that is devoted to supporting American companies and American-made products.
