SANTIAGO DE QUERÉTARO, Mexico - BRP opened a new manufacturing facility in Querétaro’s industrial park where it will manufacture composite hulls and decks for Sea-Doo watercraft, and assemble the Sea-Doo Spark PWC and engines for its Can-Am off-road vehicles.
By 2015 the entire Sea-Doo watercraft lineup will be produced in the Querétaro facility, the company said.
Once completed, the project will represent an investment of about $100 million and should employ an expected 1,100 people, BRP added. The Querétaro facility is designed to meet LEED certification standards. During construction, BRP implemented a project to recycle construction residues.
“Mexico is a competitive global product delivery hub for BRP thanks to the commitment, dedication and good work of all our employees,” said José Boisjoli, president and chief executive officer. ''We believe that, through a combination of Mexico’s outward-looking trade strategy based on its diversified network of trade agreements and BRP’s export business model, we can compete more effectively in various markets and continue to grow our volumes.”
BRP has been present in Mexico since 2001; its facility in Juárez assembles all Can-Am ATVs and side-by-sides. Today, that facility employs more than 1,250 people.
