In an fascinating twist of occasions, Harley-Davidson has simply launched to the Milwaukee Enterprise Journal (or Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) that the corporate’s manufacturing facility freeze is lifting in three brief days.
The model’s manufacturing freeze on Might twenty fourth was purportedly because of an unknown ‘regulatory compliance matter’ that spanned Harley’s complete international plant community, with manufacturing halted in any respect plant places; the 2 in Wisconsin, in Menomonee Falls and Tomahawk (together with “car operations plant in York, Pennsylvania, and meeting vegetation in Brazil and Thailand”).
Harley’s prone to pay dearly for the pause in manufacturing; so what’s the estimate of funds misplaced within the chaos?
“Harley has probably misplaced floor on the manufacturing of round 9,000 bikes…that equates to roughly $170 million of cargo income, in line with Baird estimates.”
We’re advised that Harley hasn’t submitted something – updates or in any other case – to the U.S. Securities or Change Fee, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s makes an attempt to discover a cause for the shutdown had been met with radio silence…for now.
Keep tuned for updates, as Harley will ultimately have to interrupt their silence on what went sideways.
With the LiveWire meeting purportedly unaffected by the difficulty, your guess is pretty much as good as ours as to which petrol-powered half went screwy.
What do you suppose went fallacious with Harley’s manufacturing? Drop a remark letting us know what you suppose (we love listening to from you), and as all the time – keep protected on the twisties.
