Gov. Scott Walker’s office announced Monday that he will visit BRP US, Inc. in Sturtevant Tuesday after the company expanded their facility to add 458 jobs over three years.
BRP – formally known as Bombardier Products – makes outboard motors and moved to Sturtevant from Waukegan, IL, about 10 years ago. The Evinrude division remained in Waukegan but the company decided to consolidate its locations, resulting in the expansion.
According to Village Clerk/Interim Administrator Mary Cole, some of the jobs are relocated and some are brand new positions. The company started adding the new jobs in 2010 and is expected to fill the rest by the end of 2012.Share on Facebook
