VICTORY HAS NEVER CONSIDERED MOVING TO MEXICO...EVER!!!
Before you jump to conclusions please review the facts and don't react to rumor!!!!
I didn't say they are moving ALL production? Maybe you had a bad day.
And you're thinking I'm having a bad day because???
I very politely corrected your misguided assumptions and incorrectly stated rumor by emphasizing that Victory isn't moving any of it's production to Mexico...at all. None, Nada, zip, zilch. And even though Polaris is moving there, they are only moving some of their production.
But since you brought it up, next time you might want to check your facts a little closer before you help spread a false rumor, especially one that is over a year old
If your wondering why I am being such a smart aleck then look at what shooter and albradburn posted. People accept and act on what is posted on the INTERNET as fact. That's why I never post a rumor and why I felt I needed to bold and increase the font in my opening statement.
For example, (no offense intended) I didn't trust the information posted in the thread talking about Harley closing their wheel production in Australia until I found it on a reputable site (in that case an Australian news website). Even though you would think Motorcycle.com would be a reputable site, here is a link to their report about Polaris' move to Mexico Victory Motorcycles Outsourcing to Mexico?
The writer accepted rumor at face value and ended up printing a clarification. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE INCLUDING WHERE POLARIS CLARIFIED THEY ARE NOT MOVING VICTORY PRODUCTION TO MEXICO
Problem is finding a workforce in Nevada that rivals Mexico. It's way easier to find workers south of the border.
That said, there are other US states that would be better examples than NV, and arguably would fit the requirement posed. I honestly think the reason was costs and the "being closer to our customer base" while cost-influenced is not the whole story.
I picked Nevada because I was stationed there and know it more than any other state in that section of the country. The biggest thing Nevada has going for it that I know of is there isn't a state income tax. Rather a lot of the state income comes from the gaming industry.
I didn't personally check into business rules but I would think there would be incentives for moving your business there. If I remember correctly, car and renters insurance were cheaper there than most places I've been. Also Amazon opened a 750,000-square-foot order fulfillment center outside of Fernley in 1999. With no major natural disasters and easy access to both I-80 and a rail system it looked like a great place to me. But like I said, I'm not a business tycoon
And yes I understand Mexican workers are cheaper than American workers, it would still be nice if we could keep more jobs here, even if it means a slightly
higher purchase price.
