Textron to combine Jacobsen and Textron Specialized Vehicles

By |  October 24, 2016 0 Comments

Textron Inc., will combine the operations of its subsidiary companies Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. (TSV) and Jacobsen and cease operations in Charlotte, N.C. by the close of 2017.

The marriage of the two companies will allow them to better serve their shared customers in golf and other industries, and operate more efficiently through a common supply chain and efficiencies of scale in manufacturing and back-office operations, according to the company.

“The combination of Textron Specialized Vehicles and Jacobsen will be nimble, optimally sized, and well equipped to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” says Kevin Holleran, president and CEO of Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. “We are working carefully to ensure a seamless transition that is invisible to customers. We will maintain the level of support and service — before, during, and after the sale — that both Jacobsen and TSV customers expect and demand.”

As part of the integration, Jacobsen’s operations in Charlotte, N.C., will relocate to TSV facilities in Augusta, Ga., with the first phase of relocation expected to be completed by the end of March, and all operations planned to be relocated by the close of 2017. Jacobsen’s field sales and service teams will remain in place, and it will continue operations in Coatesville, Ind. and Ipswich, U.K.
