Mercury Marine is investing nearly $10 million in an expansion of its Fond du Lac headquarters, marking its third expansion project at the facility in a three-year span.
The recreational marine propulsion engine manufacturer also expanded its headquarters in 2015, adding 45,000 square feet, and 2016, adding 53,000 square feet. The latest expansion adds another 20,000 square feet to the 2.5 million-square-foot facility and pushes Mercury Marine, which is owned by Brunswick Corp. (NYSE:BC), over the $800 million mark for expansion, and research and development spending since 2009.
The new expansion specifically involves the construction of a two-story noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) facility. The first chamber and associated office space should be completed by October, while the second chamber will be finished by the end of the year, according to the company's website.
