    Congratulations to Old Town Canoe. You have survived over 100 years through technology changes and depression/recesssions, and continue to make the moves necessary to survive in these challenging times, and well into the future. The Johnson family is one class act. Good luck going forward!

    Cool to hear that the R&D will be here.  And what a fantastic example of corporate jargon too! Can anybody interpret that for the layman ;-)  !!   

    • Yeah! It say where outta here!!!!! We are  going to Europe!

      Old Town is just a  layover!

      { The move to Old Town, Maine, is expected to take place in the next year and will also include transitioning its watercraft “to a lower- cost local independent distributor business model in Europe by the end of July 2012,” the statement said.}

    It basically means that they are streamlining operations by consolidating the full business in Old Town. Yes, some people will lose their jobs, a sad but necessary consequence of todays economy and business environment. But the company will survive as a quicker, more versatile operation. The Johnson family is still investing in Old Town. This is very good news.

    Marketing & R&D work closely to develop the latest new ‘stuff’ that will sell. It is a conflict between the Engineers desire to create what they percieve as cool things and Marketing telling them that it won’t sell. It is a marriage made in heaven. Good luck.
