Motorsport Aftermarket Group

MAG moves to fold Motorcycle-superstore in to J&P Cycles

As if any further evidence of a market under pressure were needed, the Motorsport Aftermarket Group’s retail operations division is set for further consolidation. Their operation is to be folded in to into J&P Cycles in 2017.

The move and other related cutbacks are expected to result in anywhere from 20 to 60 layoffs as the present configuration is combined into a J&P Cycles footprint that itself saw radical surgery less than two years ago.
At that point the J&P Cycles inventory held at its traditional Anamosa, Iowa warehouse was consolidated into the former K-Mart warehouse complex that MAG/TR owned at Louisville, Kentucky, with the customer service jobs moving to Texas.
It is now thought that the staff at the customer service and fulfilment centers at Florida, California, Kentucky and Pennsylvania will lose their jobs with sales center functions consolidated in Texas.
