Great Lakes Boat Top, longtime manufacturer of marine canvas features and options, has kicked off their year long celebration of their 60th year of business.  Since its foundation in a Detroit garage, Great Lakes Boat Top has served the boaters of the Great Lakes area with their canvas covers and grown out to cover additional markets with their superior products and attention to detail.

Jim Wilson, President of Great Lakes Boat Top, says of the company’s 60 years: “It is a privilege to be part of a company dedicated to exceeding customer expectations for more than six decades…That kind of longevity speaks volumes for the quality of work of the people at Great Lakes Boat Top as well as the solid business relationships we’ve developed with customers throughout the years.”

The company began its year-long celebration with a special ceremony for employees recognizing them for their contributions to the achievement of this milestone, in which all employees were given an embroidered jacket to commemorate the start of this year of celebration.

“We look forward to the challenges and rewards the next 60 years will bring,” said Wilson. As Great Lakes Boat Top also makes replacement canvas available to retail customers with thousands of original patterns dating back more than 24 years, the people at Great Lakes Boat Top have demonstrated their commitment to boaters far into the future.
