Nordic Tugs announced it resumed production Nov. 29 following a three-month hiatus.

Employees are being recalled to the Burlington, Wash., plant "as production process dictates," the company said.

The manufacturer said in August that the closing "has been forced by the ongoing effects of the Great Recession and the reluctance of customers to order new boats."

Nordic Tugs builds handcrafted tug-style yachts from 26 to 54 feet.
