Big Contract for Marinette Marine

2/12/12 – Marinette Marine has been given a big contract from the U-S Coast Guard. The northeast Wisconsin boat-maker has received an order totaling almost 90-million dollars to make 40 rescue boats. Marinette will start delivering the boats early next year. The company says the order is part of a 600-million-dollar commitment by the Coast Guard to contract for boats over a multi-year period. But it was not immediately known how much of that business would go to Marinette Marine.
