Old Town to gain 48 jobs in consolidation

OLD TOWN, Maine —

Maine is in line to gain 48 jobs by the end of September when the parent company of Old Town Canoe consolidates operations for its paddle sports brands in Old Town.

Johnson Outdoors Inc., of Racine, Wis., announced Tuesday it is closing its Ferndale, Wash., plant, with a loss of about 90 jobs, as part of the consolidation that's expected to save more than $4 million a year.

The company said it selected Old Town as hub of its watercraft operations because of its depth of manufacturing capability and capacity for expansion.

In Augusta, Gov. John Baldacci said the state and the city of Old Town teamed up to offer a package of incentives to help meet the company's needs.
