Production on Johnson-Evinrude to begin in fall of 2001.
 
Bombardier Recreational Products today announced it will begin manufacturing Evinrude, Johnson and FICHT engines this fall, operating out of the plant the company recently bought in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.

The company bought the engine lines from Outboard Marine Corp. (OMC) early this year when OMC went bankrupt. The new engine plant will be about 35 miles north of Waukegan, Illinois, where OMC headquarters was located and where those three engine lines were built.

The company will also reopen plants in other areas that it got when it bought the OMC engine business assets.
