BRP US, Inc. (Canada)
Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP) is a privately held company that is a world leader in the design, development, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing of motorized recreational vehicles.  Its products include Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobiles, See Doo watercraft and boats, Evinrude and Johnson outboard engines, Can-Am all terrain vehicles and Spyder roadsters as well as Rotax engines.
The BRP US Sturtevant location is responsible for manufacturing and assembly of Evinrude and Johnson outboard engines.  In 2011, the company combined its manufacturing, office and professional staff in Sturtevant with its product research and development and after sales support team from Waukegan. The combination increased their Sturtevant workforce by 130 and required substantial property improvement and expansion investment.
The company is located in the Village of Sturtevant within the Village’s Renaissance Business Park.

Cordstrap’s operations were housed in a 40,000 sq ft facility when it began its manufacturing and distribution of polyester strapping systems.  As the market expanded, so too did their requirement for more space.  As an interim step, the company leased 20,000 sq ft within a nearby facility.  With continued growth the company determined that a larger facility was required.  The company moved to a 85,000 sq ft facility in 2011.
Cordstrap is located in the Town of Yorkville within the Town’s Grandview Business Park.
