(May 31, 2019) – Mercury Marine’s Land ‘N’ Sea distribution facility in Suwannee, Georgia has been presented with the Brunswick Safety Leadership Award and a check for $10,000 for its commitment to safety leading to no lost-time since 2016 and a reduced recordable rate of 75 percent during that same period of time.
