BRP announces construction of new manufacturing plant in Mexico
CHIHUAHUA – BRP Inc. announced that it will begin construction of an additional boat manufacturing facility in Chihuahua City, Mexico, an important milestone in the Company’s marine strategy.
With this construction, BRP intends to increase its manufacturing capacity to meet the demand for its marine products and drive business growth.
“Due to our recent product launches, which are revolutionizing the boating experience, including the award-winning Manitou pontoon, we want to position the business to meet consumer demand for our products, become more efficient and drive market share gains,” said Karim Donnez, president of BRP’s Maritime Group.
The new production facility represents a planned capital investment of $220 million Canadian dollars and would involve the creation of up to 1,300 new jobs, adding to the current 2,500 jobs in BRP’s Maritime Group. Production is planned to start in early 2025.
This new plant will optimize the company’s global manufacturing network by manufacturing Manitou pontoons and Alumacraft vessels, and joins the Maritime Group’s production facilities located in Lansing (Michigan), St. Peter (Minnesota), Sturtevant (Wisconsin), Spruce Pine (North Carolina) and Coomera (Queensland, Australia).
