Sturtevant was the Evinrude facility that they now build the Rotax underboard, and pos sea doo switch "pontoon" boats at.

The Mexico factory was originally scheduled to come on line in 2025

Making factories in Mexico while laying off factory workers in USA.  I'd try to not support that company.

Textron is just getting rid of employees in MN, BRP is moving their jobs to Mexico.

Neither is good, but I'd say moving jobs out of the country is more bad, or more worser

Textron doesn't have to build in Mexico to move jobs there.  Both aren't good.

BRP shouldn't have any jobs outside of Canada.

Mental midgeting is not seeing faults in a brand because they are your brand.

Workforce prices themselves out of a job. Quebecer's used to have pride in their work. They were fiercely independent and didn't look for handouts.

It's all a mess right now.  Mexicans are fleeing Mexico to the US for a job and a better life.  Americans are fleeing the United States for Mexico so they have a better life and don't need a job.

What’s not to like? BRP will pass the savings from the Mexican factories back to their customers with low, low prices.

Just because dealers fuck you over because of your personality doesn’t mean they don’t give deals to others. Cheap Mexican labor will allow them to undercut Polaris and Cat. Besides, the sloppy, sweat pants wearing, unmotivated/uncaring American pukes currently employed on the assembly lines in Thief River and Roseau certainly haven’t been setting high standards in QC. Mexican’s are grateful to work inside a factory and receive a steady paycheck.

And cost is related to profit NOT selling price.  Fucking inbred moron.

It’s called competition in a capitalist system. If you lower your production costs you can sell your product for less than the other guy. That means more sales for you. There’s a reason why Ski-Doo has been in the #1 sales spot for the past 21 years. The retards in Roseau and Thief River doesn’t know how to cut costs without ruining quality. 
 

I don’t expect you to understand any of this because you are so incredibly stupid.

Some time late last year watched an interview with the CEO of BRP. He claimed BRP was doing well and that he did not expect any fall out from a slowing economy and higher interest rates. Said that BRP caters to folks on the higher end of the pay scale and that these conditions do not adversely affect BRP. I though to myself what a great bullshit artist, can't wait for fall out. Drove by the local dealer yesterday and noticed boxes of sleds and Sea Doos sitting in his compound. Don't seem to be flying out the door like they did 3 years ago
