Brunswick closes Triton plant in Mississippi

In another round of cuts announced by Brunswick, the Triton fishing boat plant in Aberdeen, Mississippi is closing. About 170 Triton employees are to be downsized. Triton production is to be consolidated into the Little Falls, Minnesota plant.

“This action is not a reflection on the Aberdeen work force or the Triton brand,” CEO Dustan E. McCoy said in a statement. “While the closure of our Aberdeen facility is regrettable, this action is being taken only after careful consideration, and is necessary as the resulting production shift will help Brunswick accomplish several important objectives.”
