According to powersportsbusiness.com, Polaris is building a 28,000-square-foot expansion to its hometown complex in Roseau, Minnesota. The company has plans to house a brand-new robotic liquid paint system in the new facility. Along with the new paint system, the $22 million facility will enable Polaris to increase production capacity and capability.

Roseau is home to the first Polaris manufacturing plant and remains one of the company’s largest. The complex has been expanded more than 35 times in its 67-year lifetime, and this expansion will bring the total size to 828,000 square feet. Employed here are 1,400 people, from engineers to workers on the manufacturing lines, and they are still actively hiring.
