A 33,000-square-foot addition is under construction at Mercury Marine's Fond du Lac, Wis., facility.

"It's a large building, but it doesn't look that large when you look at the overall plant," community development director Wayne Rollin told the Fond du Lac Reporter newspaper. "A year and a half ago, we thought the company might not be here at all. So this is definitely good news for the community. It's not a major expansion, but any expansion is a good thing."

Construction is expected to be completed by Jan. 1, according to Mercury spokesman Steve Fleming.

The expansion project is needed to support the consolidation of Stillwater, Okla., operations with Mercury's Wisconsin site.

The new construction project will serve as the main receiving dock for Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac and as the receiving area and component storage site for Mercury MerCruiser manufacturing, Fleming told the newspaper.
