Word tonight that the general manager of the York County Harley-Davidson plant is leaving the job.  Ed Magee has resigned from Harley-Davidson to accept a job as vice president of operations and distribution with Thomas & Betts in Memphis Tennessee.  That company manufactures electrical components.  Magee has been with Harley-Davidson since 2003.  He took over as general manager of the York County plant in December of 2009.  His last day will be February 14.   Magee says, “It’s been an honor and a pleasure to work with such an incredible group of professionals.  The past few years have been humbling and full of awesome memories.  I know the company will continue to do well.”  Harley-Davidson management is expected to name a new general manager soon.

Update.  Here is the brief official statement from Harley-Davidson late this afternoon:
