Mercury Marine Updates

Update: Oklahoma Offered Mercury Marine a $300 Million Incentive (WBAY). Oklahoma Socialists! Wait until Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck hear about this.

Jobs are moving fast to Fondy. That's news we like to hear.

From the Fond du Lac Reporter:

Jobs in machining and casting at Mercury Marine's Stillwater, Okla. plant will be moving to Fond du Lac within a month.

That's the word from company spokesman Steve Fleming, who anticipates the number of manufacturing jobs locally will grow to between 1,400 and 1,600 by the end of the seven-year contract just signed with the company's current 850-member union at the Fond du Lac plant.

Most of Stillwater's 385 factory jobs will be moved to Fond du Lac over the next 18 to 24 months

Also, the Fond du Lac city council unanimously approved the Mercury Marine incentives package last night (Laurie Ritger).
