Mercury Marine seeks $10M loan from FDL county for expansion

FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Mercury Marine has asked Fond du Lac County for a $10 million loan, for an expansion that would add up to 300 new jobs. 

The entire expansion would cost $30 million.  

The County Board was scheduled to act on the loan Tuesday, in an amendment to an earlier $50 million loan agreement from 2009. 

That loan -- fueled by a special county sales tax -- helped Mercury merge its outboard motor production, incorporating an Oklahoma plant at Fond du Lac. 

In the process, Mercury Marine has doubled its workforce in Fond du Lac County over the last four years. It now has over 3,000 employees in the region.
