Monday, July 02, 2007
Brunswick Corporation will expand its manufacturing presence in North Carolina with the purchase of a boat manufacturing facility in Navassa, N.C., near Wilmington, from KCS International, Inc. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The Navassa site will offer Brunswick additional and needed capacity to build larger boats -- a growing market segment -- as well as the ability to manufacture several brands of cruisers at the facility, increasing production flexibility, productivity and efficiency. In a related action, Brunswick will close its Salisbury, Md., plant and transfer cruiser production to the new North Carolina facility.
