Mercury Marine adds distribution center in Brazil

Mercury Marine recently opened a new distribution center in Palhoca, Brazil — its third warehouse in the country.

Palhoca Mayor Camilo Martins and Mercury executives were on hand for the official opening last week.

Mercury’s other two warehouses in the country are in Manaus and Rio de Janeiro.

Martins said he is developing a study to centralize the distribution sector in Palhoca.

“Opening a distribution center in Palhoca is another step in our global expansion plans,” Mercury Marine president of Latin America Bill Gress said in a statement. “This move demonstrates a commitment to the strategic importance of the region and our customer. We are now in three locations and will look to continue the expansion in the future.”

Gress also indicated that Mercury is interested in bringing operations to Santa Catarina as a potential next step for expansion in Brazil.

“We continue to look for additional opportunities to grow in Latin America,” Gress said. “As Mercury Marine grows and the economy changes, it is important for us to identify key areas of opportunity.”
