Mercury Announces Expansion, Relocation Of Distribution Center

Record demand from global customers means more expansion for Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac.

Mercury announced Monday afternoon that they will add three expansions to the Fond du Lac campus, which will result in increased capacity and over 100,000 additional square feet to the now 3 million square foot campus.

Mercury is also planning to build a centralized, purpose-built distribution center to support its industry leading parts and accessories business.

The 512,000 square foot facility will be located in Indianapolis, IN, with the current distribution center being converted to additional manufacturing space.

Current distribution center employees will be provided transfer opportunities to other Fond du Lac based operations once the transition is complete.

In a press release issued Monday afternoon, Chris Drees, Mercury Marine president, said Indianapolis is “a strategic location that will improve delivery and service to Mercury’s global customers while adding much needed capacity for scale, stability, and reduced logistics costs.”

Mercury employees more than 4,000 people in Fond du Lac.
