Bennington, the world's premier pontoon boat manufacturer, was founded in 1997 by a small group of industry veterans. Back in 1996, when they first conceived the idea for Bennington, they took the time to question what the company should be made of. After the obvious nuts and bolts, they chased the idea that a successful company must be founded on principles. Principles aren't found on flow charts of the bottom line. Principles show up in the minds of employees, suppliers, and customers. Principles come from what we are taught, what we have experienced, and what we dream about. With that, Bennington has become the leader in the industry that has high expectations for innovative products, quality, and the owner's experience.
