Polaris to supply U.S. Army with military ATVs and parts

  • 03-Oct-2011 03:56 EDT

Polaris calls the MV700 4X4 the original military ATV, designed with input from the U.S. forces and proven in theater.

Polaris Industries Inc. has received a $54 million, three-year contract to provide all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), spare parts, and trailers to Afghan and Iraqi security forces, the U.S. government, and other allied governments. The contract was received from the U.S. Army Contracting Command-Warren and includes options to extend the contract two additional years. This new contract follows Polaris’ successful completion on an earlier multiyear contract awarded by the Army in 2007. “With more than 3000 battle-proven vehicles deployed in theater, we have developed a strong understanding of our customers’ requirements,” said Scott Wine, CEO of Polaris Industries. Polaris Defense was created in 2005 to provide a dedicated team focused on warfighters’ mobility challenges.
