It was hard to tell Trail King had changed hands from the mood at the Mitchell manufacturing plant Tuesday.
Workers carried on their regular shifts, chatting and laughing with colleagues and going about their daily routines. Managers met in offices, some behind closed doors, and at least one lengthy conference call was held. But the atmosphere was calm, almost sedate.
Bill Moller, of Mitchell, has worked at Trail King for 23 years. Moller said the change in ownership made sense.
