Higher volumes, effective cost management and accretive margins from the Valley-Dynamo acquisition accounted for the significant improvement in operating margins for the segment." Overall, Brunswick's quarterly sales across all divisions for 2004 Q1 rose 28%, with marine engines and boats leading the way.
