SANTIAGO DE QUERÉTARO, Querétaro, Mexico, Nov. 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ -
BRP today inaugurated its new manufacturing facility in Querétaro.
In its facility located in Querétaro's industrial park, BRP assembles
Rotax engines for its Can-Am off-road vehicles, assembles the Sea-Doo
Spark watercraft and manufactures composite hulls and decks for Sea-Doo
watercraft. By 2015, the entire Sea-Doo watercraft line-up will be
produced in the Querétaro facility. Once completed, the project will
represent an investment of approximately MXN1.260MM (CA$100M) and
should employ some 1,100 people by 2015. The Querétaro facility is
designed to meet LEED certification standards. During construction, BRP
implemented a project to recycle construction residues.
"Mexico is a competitive global product delivery hub for BRP, thanks to
the commitment, dedication and good work of all our employees," said
José Boisjoli, president and chief executive officer. ''We believe that
through a combination of Mexico's outward-looking trade strategy based
on its diversified network of trade agreements and BRP's export
business model, we can compete more effectively in various markets and
continue to grow our volumes."
"Wherever we are in the world, BRP tries to engage employees with its
values while preserving their culture and their way of life. I am proud
of what we accomplished in Mexico and we will continue to work on
improving the well-being of all our employees," concluded Boisjoli.
BRP has been present in Mexico since 2001 with a facility in Juárez in
