Tracker To Lay Off Workers In Miami

A boat manufacturer is laying off 112 workers in northeast Oklahoma. Officials in Miami, Oklahoma confirmed the layoffs at Tracker Marine on Thursday. The Tulsa World reports company officials cited falling boat sales and the relocation of a boat manufacturing production line to Clinton, Missouri. Miami’s interim city manager, Tim Wilson, says the layoffs will happen in 60 days. That means the plant will go from 175 employees to 63 employees. Terry Shook Senior, Tracker’s vice president of operations, says that while boat sales are down, the Miami plant is a quality facility that will still be used to produce a saltwater personal watercraft line. The Miami plant is also being considered for the installation of high-tech robotic equipment that will be used in the production of the MAKO watercraft.
