     Nov. 17 marked the opening of BRP's new state-of-the-art technician training institute within its manufacturing facility in Sturtevant, Wis. The new institute will train dealers and their employees in maintenance and repair of all BRP vehicles, engines and accessories.

    Participating in the public ribbon-cutting ceremony were Alain Villemure, vice president and general manager of BRP’s Marine Propulsion Systems division, and Martin Soucy, vice president of its global after-sales function.

    “BRP’s seven product lines are sold in over 100 countries through 4,200 dealers,” said Soucy. “We continue to implement a series of initiatives that allow BRP to remain a reference in the powersports industry worldwide. This training institute, one of five that cover our regions across five continents, is a focused investment to better equip our U.S. network to deliver excellent customer service.”

     “We are grateful to the Village of Sturtevant and the Racine County Economic Development Corporation for their support in the creation of this world-class training institute that has allowed us to create and secure over 20 full-time positions," said Villemure. “The new institute will bring around 500 visitors a year to the region. The Evinrude brand has a storied relationship with southeastern Wisconsin, and BRP is excited to open up this new chapter.”

    Technicians from dealerships all over North and South America will be fully trained and certified on all Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, Rotax and Can-Am products at this new institute, alongside the existing Evinrude training center.
