SeaArk ending Monticello boat production

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2011 at 4:57 PM

News of an increase in bauxite mining employment in Arkansas — once a very big deal in Saline County — is balanced in the wrong direction by closure of a long-standing Arkansas enterprise, the SeaArk Marine boat plant in Monticello. It once employed more than 200. About 60 will be put out of work when it stops production at the end of this year, though a few will apparently fill parts orders. The news from Monticello Live. (I should have emphasized originally, as the story I linked reports, that there are two SeaArk operations in Monticello and the recreational boat division continues.)
