In 1956 Clint Collins founded Collins, Inc. by offering lawn and garden equipment to Smithfield; mainly dealing in chainsaws for the pulp wood industry. As the years passed and business grew he saw an opportunity to provide yet another product to his community. In 1973 he began carrying OMC products like Johnson and Evinrude outboard engines. He saw success with his new venture and started a legacy that will serve his community for years to come.
In 1986 his son, Les Collins, took control of the company. With his slogan "We'll Deal," Les began to grow the company into a successful boat dealership to where it is now, the largest boat dealer in eastern North Carolina.
At Collins we strive to accomodate a wide variety of anglers. Saltwater to Fresh and everything in between. By stocking a full inventory, we are able to provide a large selection as well as pass our savings on to our customers. Along with our vast number of boats, we are a fully self contained company. We provide parts and service, even boat title registreation capabilities. Our six bay service garage and a seven person service team enables us to take care of our customers in a timely and professional manner.
Our main goal at Collins Inc. is for our Sales, Service, Parts, And Management departments to work as a team to provide overall customer satisfaction. Giving our customers fair pricing and upholding down-home values in our customer relationships is our mission.
We look forward to gaining YOU as a new customer and maintaining a great repport for years to come.
