Aluminum Chambered Boats opens new sales, service office in Ketchikan
Penetration into the Alaskan market has created substantial growth for ACB. Now all recreational and sport fishing boaters, lodges, and sightseeing guides will have the convenience and pleasure of doing business directly with Ed Purvis, business manager of Aluminum Chambered Boats' new sales and service office in Ketchikan. Purvis is the former property manager for Waterfall Group in Ketchikan. A long time Alaskan resident who, in all weather conditions commutes to work via the water, has logged more than 700 hours on his ACB over the past two years, and has recently added a second ACB to his "personal fleet" for his wife, Linda.

"Ed's dedication and superior customer service with Waterfall Group helped make them successful and Ed's association with Waterfall Resort brings intimate knowledge of the boating requirements of lodges and charter operators. We are honored and thrilled to add Ed to the ACB sales team. To have that kind of dedication and exceptional customer service along with his expertise on ACB and the marine industry greatly benefits our SE Alaska customers and adds a level of convenience we weren't able to offer before," said Larry Wieber, ACB Founder / CEO.

The new store is located at 2723 Tongass in Ketchikan. Aluminum Chambered Boats Inc. is an aluminum boat manufacturer headquartered in Bellingham, Wash. ACB provides rugged state-of-the-art high performance aluminum boats to Government, Recreational and Commercial customers on a global basis.
