Mercury Marine's plant in Suzhou, China, received the Brunswick Corp. Chairman's Safety Award for excellence in safety and employee engagement.

Plant manager Eric Liu and safety officer Lawrence Liu received the award from Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer during the plant’s 10th anniversary celebration.

As part of the recognition, Mercury Marine Suzhou was awarded $10,000 for donation to charity. Half of the donation went to the Red Cross Society of China and the other half went to a school for underprivileged children in Jiangxi province.

The Suzhou plant also achieved a record 3 million working hours without lost-time injury in 2014. Through June, the record has reached 3.25 million hours.
