BRP INAUGURATES ITS NEW MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN QUERÉTARO, MEXICO

Santiago de Querétaro, Querétaro, November 7, 2013 – 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 which it assembles all Can-Am all-terrain and side-by-side vehicles. Today, that facility employs more than 1,250 people.

BRP CHOISIT DE CONSTRUIRE SA NOUVELLE USINE À QUERÉTARO

BRP ELIJE A QUERÉTARO PARA LA CONSTRUCCIÓN DE UNA NUEVA PLANTA

BRP SELECTS QUERÉTARO TO BUILD NEW MANUFACTURING FACILITY

Santiago de Querétaro, Querétaro, October 2, 2012 – BRP is building a new manufacturing facility in Querétaro to produce engines for its Can-Am off-road vehicles, manufacture composite hulls and decks, and eventually assemble Sea-Doo watercraft (PWC).


The 55,740-m2 (600,000-ft2) facility located in Querétaro’s industrial park will be built in three phases over a period of four years. The first phase is to assemble the Rotax engines that are currently being assembled in BRP's facility in Ciudad Juárez – freeing up much-needed space to increase production capacity for ATVs and side-by-side vehicles. This phase, representing an investment of 395 million Mexican pesos (CA$30 million), will create 300 jobs and will be completed by the end of the year.

"Querétaro was the ideal choice for BRP given its proximity to Mexico City, its modern transportation infrastructure and its strong talent pool," said Thomas Wieners, plant director. "Over and above direct job creation, this opens up great opportunities to local suppliers as well."

Starting in spring 2013, BRP will put in place its new composite manufacturing process for PWC hulls and decks, and will gradually transfer its PWC assembly to Querétaro from 2014 to 2015 to provide more capacity in its Canadian plant.

"We are very excited with BRP’s investment, a world leader in the powersports industry and a manufacturer of products built in Mexico and sold in over 100 countries," said José Calzada Rovirosa, state governor. "Reputed for its capacity to innovate, BRP now opens new opportunities for our Querétaro labour force for many years to come."

Present in Mexico since 2001, BRP built a 38,000-m² (410,000-ft²) facility in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua in 2007, which now employs over 1,500 people.
