Forbes Ranks Brunswick No. 1 in Manufacturing


Forbes recognized Brunswick Corp. as one of “America’s Best Large Employers” in its annual ranking of companies. Brunswick ranked 10th overall and No. 1 in the manufacturing category.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to compile its list by surveying 50,000 workers from businesses with at least 1,000 employees. They rated their willingness to recommend their own employers and to nominate organizations other than their own.

“This award recognizes our commitment to shaping a supportive company culture that amplifies the best qualities of our talented employees and delivers results,” business acceleration president and chief people and strategy officer Brenna Preisser said in a statement. “Together, we will continue to define, create and continuously innovate the future of recreational marine.”
