ABILENE, Texas — Abilene-based Tige’ Boats Inc. has laid off a large portion of their workforce.
According to a press release, the layoff was done to prepare the company for long-term financial health.
“Concerning the proposed development agreement with the DCOA, Tige Boats has not signed or accepted the City Council approved proposal from December. We feel it is only right to continue to evaluate the nature of the consumer market and our future growth plan before going forward with any agreement,” states Daniel Gutierrez, president of Tige’ Boats.
“Our home is Abilene, and we are honored to be a part of the business community and provide a source of economic dollars to the Big Country. With Abilene, our dealers, our customers, and most importantly, our employees, we will continue to move forward,” Charlie Pigeon, Tige’ Boats CEO, and founder.
The company has not received any funds since 2005, despite being the recipient of the Development Corporation of Abilene’s economic development incentives.
