A number of Polaris dealers from the UK recently visited the new Polaris manufacturing facility in Opole, Poland. Built on almost 30 acres and covering about 345,000 square feet, this factory is the company’s first plant producing off-road vehicles outside of North America. With a capacity for up to 500 highly-skilled employees to help Polaris meet future market demand, the plant will produce approximately 35 different models for distribution across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
