Lund Boats moves Crestliner production

Posted on

Lund Boat Co. recently brought its Crestliner plant to New York Mills, Minn.

The move from Little Falls, Minn., could create jobs in New York Mills after layoffs in recent years.

About 180 positions at the Little Falls plant will be affected, says Dan Kubera, director of media relations at Brunswick Corp., Lund’s parent company. He says that about half of the positions might be transferred to New York Mills.

    Another Minnesota plant bites the dust. Many hardworking souls will not be without a job, creating hardships for many Little Falls businesses and their employees. Some folks will support and defend Brunswick’s actions, but this is what happens when an outstate large and faceless corporation buys a local industry. I do wish we had local business and banks who could buy the plant, install the necessary equipment to build aluminum boats and get back to the original business; building quality boats and related products. Ideally, the company would then be locally owned, similar to the Green Bay Packers. In other words, it could never be sold to outside interests again. Provincial, yes, but Little Falls needs to make some changes in how things are done or they too, like the boat companies, will dry up and die. Best wishes to all the employees whose jobs were eliminated. I genuinely feel for you all. As a dealer, I depended on your efforts and workmanship. Glad I’m not in the boat selling business any longer!
