BRP has inaugurated its facility located in Querétaro's industrial park in Mexico.
The facility is where BRP assembles its Sea-Doo Spark watercraft, manufactures composite
hulls and decks for Sea-Doo watercraft and assembles Rotax engines for its Can-Am off-road vehicles.
"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.'
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 $100 million and is expected to employ some 1,100 people by 2015. "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,' added Boisjoli.
The Querétaro facility is designed to meet LEED certification standards. During construction, BRP implemented a project to recycle construction residues.
BRP has been present in Mexico since 2001 with a facility in JuÃ¡rez in which it assembles all
Can-Am all-terrain and side-by-side vehicles. Today, that facility employs more than 1,250
