Brunswick Opens New Innovation Laboratory


Brunswick will be pumping new life into its already vibrant research and development efforts through its Brunswick Innovation Laboratory. The new lab will find its home in the Research Park at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The new Innovation Lab aims to beef up research and development in a number of industries, including marine engines and pleasure boats. By putting the Innovation Lab at the University of Illinois, Brunswick hopes to benefit from the university’s technical resources, engineering programs, students and faculty.

Troy Kollmann, who was formerly in charge of innovation processes and emerging technologies at Brunswick’s Mercury Marine division, will head the new research arm.
