Located just outside Indianapolis in Brownsburg, Ind., Mercury Marine’s new global distribution center opened late last month. According to a press release from the Fond du Lac, Wis.-headquartered marine engine and accessories company, the current Fond du Lac distribution center will be repurposed to expand production capacity.
The new 512,000-square-foot facility reportedly will create 350 jobs in its first full year of operation.
“We are excited to officially open our new centralized distribution center which will have an immediate and positive impact to our global channel partners,” said Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president, in the release. “We leveraged the most advanced distribution technologies in conveyance, scanning, and packaging to move products through the warehouse efficiently and accurately to better serve our global customers.”
Products received, warehoused and shipped in the new distribution center include engine maintenance tools, lubricants, and service-related parts and accessories. The new facility’s volume—18 million cubic feet of space—is more than three-and-a-half times greater than that of the former Fond du Lac distribution center.
