Edgewater, Fla. (Nov. 16, 2017) – Earlier this year Brunswick Commercial & Government Products (BCGP) broke ground on a major facility expansion at its corporate headquarters in Edgewater, Fla. Today, marks the completion of that expansion project, which includes a new assembly building for large boat production as well as other facility updates. During a commemorative event held this morning, the BCGP team celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Completed last month, the new 10,500-square-foot large boat assembly building has already been put to use in building the Company's multi-unit orders and vessels over 27 feet, as well as housing the Company's warranty and refurbishments shop. The new building is located on the east side of the manufacturing campus and increases the BCGP's manufacturing capacity by 50 percent.
"The facility expansion represents our continued commitment to position the Company for sustained long-term growth," said Erik Bon Fleur, BCGP's newly appointed general manager. "This project provides an update to the facility, which will allow us increase our manufacturing capabilities and produce larger and more complex vessels."
