Mercury Marine said it will open a centralized, purpose-built distribution center to support its parts and accessories business.

The new 512,000-square-foot facility, designed to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification, will be located near Indianapolis, Ind., and is scheduled to open Oct. 2022. This new distribution center will also allow the company’s Land ‘N’ Sea facilities to expand its offerings.

Merc’s current distribution facility in Fond du Lac, Wis., will be repurposed to support its propulsion systems. Employees there will be offered opportunities within the company.

“In order for us to continue to meet the needs of our global customers, we identified an opportunity to create a centralized distribution center that will have an immediate impact on our customers and our business,” Chris Drees, president, said in a statement.

Additionally, Mercury has announced expansion at its Fond du Lac campus. The company will make two additions to its foundry and one to its machining facility, adding 100,000 square feet of production space. Mercury will now have 3 million square feet of manufacturing space in Fond du Lac, having invested more than $1.7 billion in capacity and expansion and growing to more than 4,000 employees at the headquarters location.

“Expanding these facilities in Wisconsin and the opening of the new distribution center in Indiana will immediately give us the opportunity to meet the growing needs of our global channel partners,” said Drees.
