Wisconsin-based boat engine maker Mercury Marine executives on Wednesday plan to join officials from the town of Brownsburg to celebrate the opening of a 512,000-square-foot distribution center.

The marine manufacturer, a division of Brunswick Corp., said the facility will create about 250 jobs and serve as the company’s global distribution center.

The warehouse is the first facility to open in the Ronald Reagan Logistics Center near Interstate 74. The company told Inside INdiana Business its distribution center in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, will be converted into manufacturing space.

Mercury Marine provides engines, boats, services and parts for recreational, commercial and government marine applications.

The company said it selected Indiana because of its strategic location to improve delivery and service to Mercury’s global customers and reduce logistics costs.

  1. Great news; a fine American company and the only domestic boat engine manufacturer to survive the onslaught of Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, etc. Even the enormous 1950s and 1960s General Motors of outboard motors, Outboard Marine Corporation (Johnson, Evinrude, Gale, Buccaneer, etc) fell to that competition and had to be bought out of bankruptcy by Bombardier.
