Tracker Marine plans job cuts at Missouri plant

Tracker Marine plans to reduce its workforce at its Bolivar, Mo., plant by 136 employees, company officials  told The Bolivar Herald-Free Press. The reduction will be effective Dec. 26.

The company plans to move some of the positions from the Bolivar Tracker plant to the Tracker plant in Lebanon. About 100 workers are being asked to apply for those jobs, according to media reports.

A Tracker spokesman did not immediately return calls this morning.

The Bolivar plant had 234 employees in May before a temporary seasonal layoff of 38 employees.

Company officials told the newspaper the reduction is the result of current economic conditions and the transfer of the plant’s Deep V product line to the Lebanon plant, where some of the affected employees may find employment.

The Bolivar plant will continue to produce 10- to 20-foot utility boats, both riveted and welded.
