BRP opens new manufacturing plant in Mexico

Posted on Written by Michael LaBella

BRP has inaugurated a new manufacturing facility in Querétaro with the company’s growing manufacturing presence in Mexico.

At the facility in Querétaro’s industrial park, BRP assembles Rotax engines for its off-road vehicles, assembles the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft and makes composite hulls and decks for Sea-Doo watercraft.

By 2015, the entire Sea-Doo watercraft lineup will be produced at the Querétaro facility, which is expected to employ 1,100 people. Once completed, the project will have cost about $95.6 million.

The facility is designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design 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,” president and CEO José Boisjoli said in a statement. ”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,” Boisjoli said.

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

    Next thing that will happen is the U.S. will annex Mexico as a territory so the jobs growth in Mexico by way of almost no regulation can be counted as U.S. jobs growth. Sad!
