BRP INAUGURATES ITS NEW MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN QUERÉTARO, MEXICO

BRP

BRP recently inaugurated its new manufacturing facility in Querétaro, Mexico.

In its facility located in Querétaro’s industrial park, BRP assembles Rotax engines for its Can-Am off-road vehicles, assembles the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft and manufactures composite hulls and decks for Sea-Doo watercraft. By 2015, the entire Sea-Doo watercraft line-up will be produced in the Querétaro facility. Once completed, the project will represent an investment of approximately MXN1.260MM (CA$100M) and should employ some 1,100 people by 2015. 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.”

“Wherever we are in the world, BRP tries to engage employees with its values while preserving their culture and their way of life. I am proud of what we accomplished in Mexico and we will continue to work on improving the well-being of all our employees,” concluded Boisjoli.

BRP has been present in Mexico since 2001 with a facility in Juárez in which it assembles all Can-Am all-terrain and side-by-side vehicles. Today, that facility employs more than 1,250 people.
