Mercury Marine officially opened its new headquarters for the Australia, New Zealand and Pacific region.

The building, in the Melbourne suburb of Dandenong South, was officially opened by Dustan McCoy, chairman and CEO of Brunswick Corp., and John Pfeifer, president of Brunswick Marine in EMEA and Brunswick Global Structure.

Mercury’s new headquarters is equipped with a high-tech electronic parts-checking system, a training room and a workshop that includes a machine shop, a welding area and an enclosed rebuild and tool room.

“We look around the world, and this region is a great, great place for us. You have the best [marine] customers in the world, and I know the dealers are fantastic business operators,” McCoy said in a statement. “As well, our staff here are the best there are. We measure our people in many, many ways, and whichever way we look at it, no one’s better.”
