Arctic Cat Inc. has entered into an agreement to transition its snowmobile engine manufacturing from Suzuki Motor Corp. The company will begin manufacturing some of its own snowmobile engines in St. Cloud, MN, after the 2014 model year. Suzuki currently supplies all engines for Arctic Cat’s snowmobiles, and it will continue to supply engine parts to service existing engines after MY2014. “We are changing our engine strategy in order to gain more control over our products and enhance our ability to meet regulatory and performance requirements,” said Arctic Cat’s Chairman and CEO Christopher A. Twomey. “This also will enable us to better utilize our current engine manufacturing capacity, resulting in potentially better costs.” The company expects snowmobile engine production to begin in St. Cloud in fiscal 2015.
