I was at Arctic Cat’s recently expanded engine production (and engineering) facility in St. Cloud, Minn., earlier this week for a ribbon cutting featuring various dignitaries from the St. Cloud area and Arctic Cat.
The occasion was to celebrate the makeover and expansion of the St. Cloud facility; thank the great employees are designing machines and building engines there; and "rev the engine" of a company that's going full-gas down the patch set forth by CEO/President Chris Metz.
Based on what I saw on computer monitors of CAD designers at St. Cloud, and what I gleaned from conversations with several engineers, this is going to be a fun, wild ride! Yep, there’s A LOT of cool stuff coming.
