Brunswick Corp.’s Lund and Crestliner Boats plant surpassed 2 million hours of manufacturing without a lost-time accident at the New York Mills, Minn., facility.
The milestone, reached on June 27, is being recognized in a celebration of gifts presented to the more than 600 employees there.

"Brunswick believes a strong culture of safety helps to create a team of highly engaged employees that drives superior levels of quality, productivity and pride in craftsmanship. I congratulate our team and appreciate all the efforts that have gone into this milestone accomplishment."
