Nordic Tugs plans to restart production to provide products for spring deliveries, the company announced.

The Burlington, Wash.-based company is continuing to take orders during the temporary suspension of production that it announced in August. Nordic Tugs boat owners, dealers and service yards are receiving parts and service support.

Most employees were to be furloughed during the shutdown. A skeleton staff was to field customer inquiries and maintain the plant to keep it prepared to resume production when business improves, the company said when the shutdown was announced.

The action "has been forced by the ongoing effects of the Great Recession and the reluctance of customers to order new boats," according to the manufacturer.

Nordic Tugs has six domestic dealers and three international dealers that have inventory boats or boats available through the factory, the company said.

During the fall boat show season the company's dealers have seen a great deal of interest in new boats, Nordic Tugs reports.
