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.

"This mark is a significant achievement for the entire Lund and Crestliner team," vice president of operations Brian Hines said in a statement. "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."

"In a manufacturing environment that deals extensively in fabrication of sheet aluminum, protecting our employee well-being and safety is the absolute No. 1 priority for us,” safety manager Roger Cullen said.

“Our safety programs are extensive and include weekly safety improvement meetings with employees, along with continuous monitoring and awareness efforts that reach across all levels of our operation."
