Mercury Marine enters into a supply agreement with BRP
Published on: 29/05/2020
Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) and a world leader in marine propulsion systems, has entered into a strategic supply agreement with BRP to be the supplier of choice for the BRP owned boat brands Alumacraft, Manitou, Quintrex and Stacer.
BRP has decided to discontinue the production of E-TEC and E-TEC G2 engine with immediate effect. “This agreement brings us an incredible opportunity to further grow our brand in the marketplace and introduce our award-winning portfolio of outboard engines to new customers around the world,” commented Chris Drees, President of Mercury Marine. “We have enjoyed long-standing relationships with Alumacraft, Manitou and Telwater, and we look forward to continuing to work with them while providing class-leading outboard engines and exceptional service to all of their global customers.”
Karim Donnez, Senior Vice President, Marine Group, IS&T and Global Transformation explained, “We stay true and committed to our marine strategy, and we strongly believe that having two of the most innovative global marine companies join forces will not only be mutually beneficial to Mercury Marine and BRP but also the industry as a whole and customers. “While COVID-19 has precipitated the discontinuation of the production of our outboard engines, we will proudly offer packaged Manitou, Alumacraft, Quintrex and Stacer boats with Mercury Marine going forward.”
“We are excited for the BRP dealers and consumers to experience our new engines – and with our recent capacity related investments, we are well-positioned for continued growth,” concluded Chris Drees.
Boat packages for Alumacraft, Manitou, Quintrex and Stacer with Mercury outboards will be available in early June
