Polaris lays off 100 workers
Polaris Industries Inc. cut production of its Ranger utility vehicle at its plant in Roseau and laid off more than 110 employees.
The ATV maker, Snowmobiles and other leisure vehicles has been battered as the economy turned to recession and discretionary spending has tapered off.
Mark Karl is director of operations for the company's plant in Roseau. He disclosed the layoffs Monday in a speech at Roseau's Civic and Commerce Banquet.
Polaris Director of Investor Relations Richard Edwards says the company has gone from two shifts to one shift for the production of its RTV Ranger utility vehicles in Roseau.
