Brunswick Corp.'s facility in New York Mills, Minn., is expanding by 22,000 square feet to accommodate Crestliner manufacturing that the plant recently added.

Lund boats also are built at the facility.

The additional space also will improve manufacturing flow and efficiency, as well as provide needed warehouse space, the company said.

This project, which will break ground early this month, is slated to be completed by the end of the year.

“Demand has been solid for both the Crestliner and Lund brands of boats that are manufactured at the New York Mills facility,” the company said in a statement.

Plant officials said they are seeing “robust early season orders.”
