Tracker Marine Group announces layoffs

Miami, Okla.-based Tracker Marine Group will lay off 112 people because of declining boat sales and the move of a production line to Missouri, city leaders announced Thursday.

Tracker is moving its Tahoe manufacturing operation to Clinton, Mo., the Tulsa World newspaper reported.

The layoffs will occur in 60 days, reducing personnel at the Miami plant from 175 to 63 employees, city officials said.

“Although boat sales are down significantly, because the Miami plant is a quality facility, it only makes sense for us to continue utilizing this location for the Mako production,” Tracker Marine senior vice president of operations Terry Shook said in a statement.

The Miami plant is also being considered for the installation of robotic equipment that would be used in the production of Mako boats.

Tracker Marine Group is a member of the Bass Pro Group family.
