Polaris To Sell Part Of Manufacturing Operations

Recreational vehicle manufacturer announced plans to sell its metal stamping assets to a Wisconsin company.

MEDINA, Minn. (AP) -- Polaris Industries Inc. plans to sell its metal stamping assets to a Wisconsin company.

The Medina recreational vehicle manufacturer announced last May that it would close its plant in Osceola (os-ee-OH'-lah), Wis., beginning this year. The sale of part of its manufacturing operations to Kapco Inc., of Grafton, Wis., could save some of the 515 jobs at the Osceola plant.

Kapco plans to lease the plant and hire at least 50 employees.

Kapco spokesman Neil Willenson tells the Star Tribune that Polaris employees aren't guaranteed the jobs, but are likely to be hired since they already have experience operating the plant's metal stamping equipment. Kapco is a metal fabrication and stamping company.
