Mercury Marine has officially opened its new 49,000-square-foot electro-deposition paint (EDP) primer system expansion. The new addition, which broke ground in mid-2015, will double Mercury’s current processing capabilities.
The new Mercury process reinforces our ability to make a better product
“This new and expanded process reinforces our ability to make a better product for our customers,” said John Pfeifer, Mercury Marine president. “This expansion will improve our flexibility, quality and improve the environment. It also reinforces our commitment to growth in Fond du Lac and sets Mercury up nicely for future growth.”
Since 2009, Mercury Marine has invested more than $730 million in capital investments and R&D. Projects such as 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. 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.
