Brunswick plant in Indiana marks safety milestone

By the end of April, Brunswick’s Fort Wayne, Ind., facility had successfully worked more than 1 million hours without a lost time accident or illness.

The plant produces Harris FloteBote and Cypress Cay pontoons.

“Brunswick Fort Wayne operations has always promised its customers the highest-quality pontoons on the market,” Tavid Markarian, vice president of operations at the Fort Wayne plant, said in a statement. “That guarantee is possible because of our workers’ dedication to best practices. One million hours without lost time is affirmation of that dedication.”

Employees celebrated the milestone with a luncheon this month where each of them received a polo shirt with a custom “Million Man Hours” logo.
