Ilmor Marine, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ilmor Engineering Inc., started production this week at its new headquarters in Mooresville, N.C.

The 50,000-square-foot engine assembly and test facility is capable of producing up to 15,000 engines per year. The first engines off the production line today are already on their way to OEM customer MasterCraft Boat Company, the company said.

"This is a great day for our marine division. The program has been in the works for over three years," Ilmor Engineering president Paul Ray said in a statement. "We found a solid opportunity when we entered the marine business as a racing organization in 2002. Our core business had been auto racing, but we believed our engineering skills could be put to good use in the high-performance boating industry."

Ilmor worked closely with the state of North Carolina and Iredell County to hire skilled specialists from the area.

"Through careful planning and product development, we now have a very well-known brand synonymous with performance, high quality and strong customer support," said Ray. "Each of those attributes are very important to us and our goal is to provide all of our customers with the same experience as we expand into exciting new areas of the marine business."
