Mercury Marine | History of the Company
Mercury Marine turned 75 years old in 2014. Looking back at this exciting history, as with many outboard companies it's roots can be traced back to its very unique founder; Carl Kiekhaefer. Although being labeled the father of Mercury Outboards, its interesting that Kiekhaefer actually worked as a draftsman for Evinrude outboard motors in 1927 however was fired after just 3 months employment with Evinrude. Kiekhaefer had 3 unique qualities that made him less than the ideal employee 1) He had a keen eye to see inherent flaws in mechanical designs, 2) He often fixated and worked tirelessly trying to fix those flaws, 3) He couldn't stand to work alongside anyone that didn't possess those first two qualities. Some 12 years later in 1939, and after working for Stearns Magnetic, Carl and his father took the risk of entrepreneurship by purchasing the largest employer in Cedarburg Wisconsin; Cedarburg Manufacturing Company $25,000. The company was the failing manufacturer of the Thor Outboard Motor. As part of the purchase Kiekhaefer inherited 384 Thor Outboard Motors after they were rejected from a 500 unit order by Montgomery Ward because they simply didn't work. Little to Carl's knowledge and his true desire to get into the Magnetic Separator business, these outboard motors would be the predecessor to the now world famous Mercury Outboard Motors. By 1940 his redesigned & renamed Mercury Outboard Motors (named after the Roman god of speed) were succeeding and therefore yielded Kiekhaefer orders upwards of 32,000 units annually. This was no small feat realizing Evinrude was only producing slightly more than this volume at the time. In January 1940, 5 new Mercury Outboard Models were introduced; the K1, K2, K3, K4 and K5 Outboard Motors with prices ranging from $42.95 - $98.50. And thus Mercury Outboards were born by Kiekhaefer and his 25 employees working 18 hours per day, 7 days a week.
