Brunswick Corp. shut down two boat assembly lines in Ashland City, Tenn., laying off 135 workers.
The moves are related to Brunswick's announcement last week that it was selling Triton Boats to Fishing Holdings, an affiliate of Platinum Equity, Brunswick spokesman Dan Kubera confirmed to Soundings Trade Only.
The production of Triton fiberglass boats will be relocated from Ashland City, Tenn., to Fishing Holding's Flippin, Ark., plant
Lund fiberglass manufacturing will be moved to the Brunswick Boat Group's Tellico fiberglass boatbuilding facility in Vonore, Tenn. Trophy fiberglass fishing boats will be built in Ashland City through the remainder of the year as Brunswick evaluates strategic alternatives, Brunswick said last week.
About 90 people will remain employed in Ashland City until Brunswick decides what to do with that line, The (Nashville) Tennessean reports.
