    ASME Milwaukee invites you on our tour of Mercury Marine

    This year, 2014, is the 75th Anniversary of Mercury Marine! Since the company was founded in 1939, Mercury has consistently emphasized quality, performance, innovation and reliability. Today, that pledge remains as strong as ever. Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation of Lake Forest, Illinois, began as the Kiekhaefer Corporation of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, when Carl Kiekhaefer and a small but dedicated staff of employees sought to design and produce the best possible boat engine. For more than 70 years, Mercury Marine has been the most recognized name in the marine industry, and the memory of its founder lives on in the hearts and minds of engineers and boat enthusiasts alike.

    TOUR/PRESENTATION PROGRAM

    The evening will begin with a tour of Mercury Marine’s impressive Product Development & Engineering department highlighting their various test labs, indoor test facility, dyno cells, and our recent expansion project. After dinner, David Foulkes, the Vice President of Product Development, Engineering, and Racing, will present to the group. He will cover a company overview, related topics such as new product innovations and successes, and Mercury’s rigorous test and development as it relates to the facilities seen in the tour.
