The Brunswick Corporation announced a new addition to its Fort Wayne, Indiana manufacturing facility. The new 17,000 square-foot building will be constructed next to the existing one, and used to produce fiberglass parts for the Harris and Cypress Cay brands. The expansion comes as the Harris brand has continued to expand its portfolio utilizing more fiberglass components, and will allow the company to add fiberglass components to additional models in the future.

“This announcement represents an exciting milestone for our Fort Wayne facility as we continue to invest in the Harris brand, and execute on our strategic plans to increase capacity, stabilize supply chain continuity and drive efficiencies across our global footprint,” says Aine Denari, Brunswick Boat Group president.

The new facility will add nearly 50 new jobs to the Fort Wayne area, and is expected to be complete in May 2023. Do to local job creation, Brunswick stands to receive incentive-based tax credits of up to $400,000 from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to assist in its expansion.

“We are committed to delivering best-in-class pontoons through innovative designs, leading technology and a high-quality manufacturing process,” says Thad Pearson, Fort Wayne director of operations excellence. “This expansion supports our long-term strategy to scale our operations, invest in our infrastructure and be an employer of choice in the Fort Wayne area.”
