Mercury Marine division marks safety milestone

Mercury Marine’s capital engineering division said recently that it had surpassed 1,650 days with no lost time — a record for the plant.

The Brookfield, Wis.-based based location is Mercury’s in-house tooling and die operation. It supports the company’s Fond du Lac aluminum die-casting and casting business.

The plant operates two shifts. Nearly 60 hourly and engineering support personnel design and develop tool and die components.

“Safety is one of our core values and reaching this milestone during a time of unprecedented growth speaks volumes of the commitment of the entire team to working safely every day,” Mike Meyer, Mercury Marine castings unit general manager, said in a statement. “Over the past several years, Mercury has invested several million dollars in state-of-the-art machining centers to further enhance safety, quality and productivity.”
