"Slicer" , What sense did it make for MTW tosell off their marine Div. ??
MTW reasoning was that the Marine div. wasn't making any money If memory serves me, at that time, the Marine div. was @ a 8% profit, the crane div. was @ a neg. profit & the food div. was @ 6% profit.
I think the "boys" felt it was the Future profits that was their concern.
Did you see that Marinette(sp) just landed 2 more of those Latoriol (sp) Combat ships?? I think that makes #7 of a 12 ship contract. not bad for a company that was only making 8% profit. 2% higher then their next div..
