Thread regarding Brunswick Corp. layoffs

This is about 10 years old but here it goes anyway - Mercury, Fond du Lac Site Layoffs

Fond du Lac Site

Two major Wisconsin companies -- Mercury Marine and Ashley Furniture -- have each announced dozens of job cuts.

Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac said Friday that 85 permanent job cuts have been made, and parts of the outboard motor manufacturer's plant will be on a two-week temporary shutdown starting Monday.

Human resources vice president Ray Atchinson said the moves are aimed at putting production capacity in line with demand.

Ashley Furniture in Arcadia said job cuts will affect 90 people, or about 3 percent of the furniture manufacturer's Wisconsin work force.

Ashley chief executive officer Todd Wanek said the struggling housing market has reduced demand for home furnishings.

2019 - not true. This is an old article that some news source reposted recently without a date. The article very old and not relevant to the state/health of Mercury Marine in June 2019.
