The investment will be used, in part, to enlarge the production area and optimize the material flow, but also to build new offices, locker rooms, break rooms and a fitness-center for employees.
“The increased demand for our Rotax engines is proof of our market leadership in development and production of high-performance engines,” says Gerd Ohrnberger, vice-president and general manager, BRP-Rotax. “This investment will allow us to increase production capacity by optimizing and modernizing our plant. It will moreover contribute to improve the working conditions and well-being of our employees.”
The construction work will start in January 2007 and is expected to be finalized by October 2007. In the past year, BRP will have invested more than US$8 million in its Austrian facilities.
Located in Upper Austria, BRP-Rotax GmbH & Co. KG in the past 50 years has developed more than 350 engine types and produced more than six million Rotax engines. As an affiliate of Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP), BRP-Rotax develops and produces innovative two- and four-stroke high performance engines for Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, Sea-Doo watercraft and sport boats, Can-AmTM ATVs and quads, motorcycles, ultralight and light aircraft as well as karts.
