New products have represented a third or more of total company revenues over the past six years, helping to sustain market-leadership positions in nearly a dozen categories, and garnering “best of the best” recognitions from major industry institutions and publications, like Field & Stream, Men’s Journal, National Geographic Adventure, Popular Science, Women’s Health and Paddler magazines, among others. Johnson Outdoors is moving forward on a four-point plan to transform the Company to strengthen competitiveness for sustained profitable growth. Significant reductions in costs and infrastructure, as well as dramatic improvements to efficiency, have enabled the Company to continue to invest strategically in innovation and position Johnson Outdoors’ unparalleled portfolio of market-leading brands for continued successes.
