No new Big Dog plant anytime soon

Back in 2005, Sheldon Coleman bought 106 acres at the K-96 and Greenwich Road interchange as a site for a future Big Dog Motorcycles plant if the company’s dramatic growth continued. Of course, that turned out to be Big Dog’s high point and the company has shrunk considerably since then.

On Friday, Coleman confirmed that he no longer plans to put a Big Dog factory out there, but was coy about what he would do with the land: “I’m pursuing other options.”

As to Big Dog, the company now has more capacity at its E. Douglas plant as its production slows. He said they continue to make it more efficient as well. I’m guessing it will be a long time before Big Dog leaves that location.
