Brunswick Corporation’s manufacturing facility in Reynosa, Mexico, has recorded more than four million hours, which is nearly three years, without a lost-time incident.

The plant has been part of Brunswick since 2002 and builds Bayliner, Sea Ray, HeyDay and Lund Fiberglass Sport Boats ranging from 16 to 25 feet.

“This is a remarkable accomplishment and a testament to the hard work and dedication to safety by all of our employees in Reynosa,” Keith Yunger, Bayliner president, said in a statement. “This achievement highlights our commitment to continuous improvement and attention to detail. We are dedicated, at all of our plants, to create a culture that delivers the best possible product to our customers for an enjoyable boating experience.”

Added Mike Fritts, Bayliner vice president of operations, “To run a world-class manufacturing facility, everyone must be committed to safety and quality. I am proud to say that we have not only achieved our goals but are on pace to set a new standard for safety in the entire industry.”

In addition to the safety milestone, the Reynosa facility has won five consecutive Brunswick Distinguished awards, seven consecutive CSI awards and the 2018 LSS BB Chairman’s Award.

The plant’s mission statement reads: “Through the talent and constant development of our people, we will be leaders in boat manufacturing and product innovation, under a respectful, discipline, development and safety work environment, achieving operational excellence and continuous improvement.”
