Mercury Marine is expanding its global headquarters in Wisconsin, adding a nearly 20,000-square-foot, two-story NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) facility at a cost of $10 million.

The first chamber of the NVH facility is scheduled to be done by October, with a second chamber opening by year’s end.

The NVH technical center will contain two marine-specific hemi-anechoic chambers, structural dynamic testing bays, listening rooms, offices and workspaces.

Mercury Marine says the $10 million investment will add close to 20,000 additional square feet to the more than 2.5 million square-foot campus.Mercury Marine

“This new facility will allow us to continue to support NVH development and allow our engineers to study every noise, movement and performance indicator on every engine that enters the market,” Tim Reid, vice president of product development and engineering, stated in a press release.

Mercury Marine has been busy: The new facility will be its third expansion in 18 months.
