Brunswick’s New York Mills Facility Honored


For the second year in a row, Brunswick Corp.’s New York Mills facility — which builds Lund and Crestliner boats — has been named a Top 150 Workplace in its home state of Minnesota by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

It landed in the 16th spot in the large company category.

“Winning this award for a second consecutive year is a great testament to our strategy of empowering employees,” said Dirk Hyde, president of Brunswick’s aluminum boats group and Lund Boats, in a statement. “Working as partners to adapt in this quickly changing environment is what drives our success and provides for continuous innovation and improvement.”

According to the Star Tribune, the newspaper received responses from over 140,000 people employed in the state in public, private and non-profit sectors.

“Amid our current health crisis, this award will allow you to stand out for the right reasons,” the newspaper wrote about the New York Mills facility. “It puts a spotlight on organizations with strong connections with their employees and a strong culture of success. It’s an achievement worth sharing with your employees and the public.”

A company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota to qualify for an award. The final rankings are based on composite scores solely from employee responses. A complete list of companies honored as Top Workplaces can be found here.

“Our responsibility as an organization is to encourage and support our team, which is especially critical with today’s environment,” Hyde said, adding, “It ensures we retain and attract the most talented people who are committed to each other and our community.”
