In Husqvarna’s third-quarter financial results, the company reported that production issues that affected its manufacturing operations this year hasn’t had any effect on consumer products.
Evin Ellis, who is a spokesperson for the company, tells Consumers Digest that in late 2010, Husqvarna’s Beatrice, Neb., manufacturing plant was closed and the production of units that had been made there was moved to an Orangeburg, S.C., plant. The shift slowed production of Husqvarna’s professional zero-turn-radius riding mower but didn’t affect the production of consumer models, Ellis says.
“If a consumer is going to buy a Husqvarna riding mower, they wouldn’t have a problem finding it,” she says.
