December 19, 2015

Langley, British Columbia (December 15, 2015) – Mercury Marine is pleased to announce the opening of its new state of the art facility in Langley, British Columbia.  The 50,000 square-foot facility will be the new home to both Mercury Marine Canada and Land ‘N’ Sea Canada and is officially opened to serve Mercury’s dealer network throughout the Western Region of Canada.

“This new facility will help us better serve our customers across all of Canada,” said Georges Jalbert,

general manager for Mercury Canada. “Having the ability to expand the market to the western half of the country and provide immediate attention to our customers is paramount to our growth and our success in Canada.”

The facility opened on December 14 and is fully operational.  Prior to the expansion, all finished goods were shipped from Milton.  Now with the expansion, engines, parts and accessories will be available from British Columbia to allow customers to receive their order faster.

“This is an exciting time for Mercury Marine,” said Jalbert. “As we close out 2015, we continue to grow and continue to look for ways to better serve our customers.  This facility in British Columbia allows us to do that.”
