Mercury Marine® has been making world-class outboards and sterndrives for more than 75 years.
We started back in 1939 in a small machine shop in Wisconsin, and we've grown into the largest builder of marine propulsion systems in the world. Number one on the water. And we didn't get there by sitting still.
Ours is a long history of firsts and foremosts. A history of constant improvements, as we've set and reset the standards for reliable, trouble-free performance; superior power and torque; low emission; and low fuel consumption. And nobody has given boaters more more ways to propel their specific boats, activities, and pursuits reliably, comfortably, and efficiently across the water.
Mercury Marine® is a large company with locations, employees, and dealers all around the world. But back in 1939, when Carl Kiekhaefer built the first Mercury outboard, we were pretty small. Carl was a dreamer and tinkerer. He loved the outdoors. He loved engineering. And he loved to go fast. He was a great role model, too. Because all these years later, those same passions still apply. We love the outdoors. We love engineering. And we love to go fast. Save a place for us in the boat!
We have more than 5,200 people working at Mercury Marine®. And just like our engines, you'll find our people all around the world, in multiple locations, including nine manufacturing plants. It's not accidental. It's intentional. It's a part of our commitment to you and your fun on the water. Anywhere in the world.
