The former Brunswick Boat Group Logistics building in the Forks of the River Industrial Park in East Knoxville, Tenn., was sold for $1 million to a limited liability company owned by the family of Bill Hamilton, the owner of Hamilton Equipment Co.

Hamilton told the Knoxville News Sentinel that the 39,286-square-foot building will be a fabrication facility for Hamilton Equipment, which sells specialty vehicles for the mining and construction industry.

Hamilton said his company refurbishes trucks and makes bodies that go on the back of heavy-mining equipment, and will be making a line of erosion-control units at the property.

The property is not the only former boating facility that's available in the area.

Bob Thornton, of Baker Realty Co., also has listed a 181,000-square-foot property that Brunswick used to build Sea Rays. The Riverview plant is listed at $4.9 million and includes 50 acres and a separate maintenance and chemical building.
