Mercury Racing, a division of Brunswick Corporation, has broken ground on its new manufacturing operations plant expansion in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, to help meet global customer demand for the company’s high-performance marine propulsion systems.
The two-phase construction project will add 40,000 square feet of manufacturing operations space to the southwest corner of the facility and expand the current propeller shop by 8,000 square feet on the north side of the building.
“Racing is an integral part of the long-range strategy for Mercury,” says Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president. “This facility expansion gives us room to grow, bolsters our ability to meet the demand for innovative new products and demonstrates our continued commitment to the Fond du Lac community.”
The manufacturing operations space is expected to be finished by April 2023 with the propeller shop completed by October 2023.
