It was the hottest rumor making the rounds at International Bowl Expo in Orlando, and now it has been confirmed: Brunswick is getting out of the bowling business.
Expo rumors centered around Brunswick selling its bowling centers to Bowlmor AMF, a company formed when Bowlmor acquired the AMF-branded center chain.
Now, the company has announced that it also is seeking to sell its bowling products business.
The announcement was made by Brunswick Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dustan E. McCoy, who recently announced that he would be retiring from the company sometime in 2015.
More details momentarily.
