Mercury Marine announces 45,000 square foot EDP parts expansion to Fond du Lac global headquarters

Fond du Lac, Wis. (May 27, 2015) – Mercury Marine, the world leader in marine propulsion and technology, is adding a 45,000 square foot expansion to its electro-deposition paint (EDP) system that will double its current processing capabilities. The current project will be complete by January 2016 and the new system will be operational by Q4, 2016.

“We are developing a new state of the art coating system that gives our engines superior corrosion and warranty protection,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president. “This process enforces our ability to make a better product for our customers who expect extreme reliability in their Mercury engines. This expansion will not only create jobs, but it’ll improve our flexibility, quality and improve the environment.”

With this expansion, since 2009, Mercury Marine has invested more than $580MM into capital investments and R&D. Projects like these support growth and the company’s commitment to provide the most advanced products, and to increase manufacturing capacity within its Fond du Lac facilities. Mercury Marine is also creating jobs in the state of Wisconsin. Close to 90 percent of work done on the EDP expansion involves Fond du Lac or Wisconsin based companies such as TTX, CD Smith, Excel Engineering and many more.

“We remain committed to Fond du Lac and the state of Wisconsin and will continue to expand and create jobs not only in Wisconsin, but around the world,” said Pfeifer. “We are thrilled to continue to invest in the community and in our partners.”

Mercury currently employs more than 5,000 people worldwide, approximately 2,800 of whom work in Fond du Lac.
