MotorGuide to move to Michigan

Mercury announced today it will integrate its MotorGuide business in Tulsa, Okla., into its Attwood Marine Products division in Lowell, Mich.

The move, a result of the continued economic downturn, will allow Mercury to take advantage of the “development and operations synergy” of the much larger plant in Lowell. The plant in Tulsa will be permanently closed, though Attwood will retain a research-and-development center in the Tulsa area.

The closure is unrelated to  the media reports regarding the future of Mercury Marine’s sterndrive operations in Stillwater, the company said in a statement.

MotorGuide currently employs 61 people, some of whom could be offered opportunities to relocate to Lowell.

The target date for completion of the move is Oct. 30.
