Brunswick Commercial & Government Products (BCGP) has completed a major facility expansion at its corporate headquarters in Edgewater, Fla. The project included a new assembly building for large boat production as well as other facility updates.
Completed last month, the new 10,500-sq.-ft. large boat assembly building has already been put to use in building the company’s multiunit orders and vessels over 27', as well as housing the company’s warranty and refurbishments shop. The new building is located on the east side of the manufacturing campus and increases BCGP’s manufacturing capacity by 50%.
“The facility expansion represents our continued commitment to position the company for sustained long-term growth,” Erik Bon Fleur, BCGP’s newly appointed general manager, said in a statement. “This project provides an update to the facility, which will allow us to increase our manufacturing capabilities and produce larger and more complex vessels.”
In his new role, Bon Fleur is responsible for day-to-day operations and business activities.
Prior to joining the BCGP team, Bon Fleur served in various other roles with BCGP’s parent company, Brunswick Corp., including continuous improvement manager for Boston Whaler, and most recently director of operations for Thunder Jet, an aluminum boatbuilder in Washington state. Bon Fleur has been with Brunswick since 2012, when he joined the company as a process engineer at the previously owned Hatteras Yachts.
