It’s time for the latest behind-the-scenes update from Deaton’s Waterfront Services! We’re excited to announce that after 5 great years at our previous location, we’ve moved locations to a larger facility! This new location allows us to expand to better serve our customers. Today, we’ll showcase a few cool things about our new headquarters.
A Quick History of Deaton’s Headquarters
Since splitting off on our own in 2011, we’ve rapidly grown from a small shop to a large service provider in the last decade. We started off in our Olio Rd. shop near Geist Reservoir. This building allowed us to serve the local lakes of Central Indiana well, but we eventually began getting more inventory in than we could store there. We moved 10 minutes away into the downtown Fortville Madison St. location. This location gave us a much larger yard, so we largely increased our inventory of EZ Dock and material to make custom docks. However we eventually ran into the same problem as before, we had no room! So we designed this new building that can hold about 4 times the amount of inventory that the Madison St. building could. So hopefully we don’t run into the same problem!
The Benefits of the New Headquarters
As we’ve previously stated, we ran out of space to store EZ Dock at our old shop. The great thing is, this new shop allows for us to store EZ Dock inside! This prevents it from getting rained on and covered in snow during the winter. It’ll help our product appear as if it just came out of the factory.
Another great benefit of this new location is our outdoor storage lot. We now have plenty of storage space for RVs and boats! This will be a great benefit for our customers as we get asked a lot about where to store a boat. In the past we also haven’t been able to winterize boats, but we are now able to.
Before we get too long winded in this blog, let’s talk about one last cool thing but there are plenty more! We installed a retention pond in the front of our new building to be able to showcase our products. We’re going to set up a small display in the pond so curious customers will be able to get a feel for what they’re buying.
If you’re in the area, feel free to stop by and check the new location out! We are located at 3252 W 1000 N, Fortville, IN 46040. As always, if you’re interested in a new dock or have questions regarding any of our products feel free to give us a call at 317-747-4933.
