Wisconsin motorcycle plant to close

Polaris Industries, the parent company of Victory Motorcycles, has announced that it will shut down the Osceola, Wisconsin, plant in order to keep itself competitive in a sluggish economy.

The press release claimed that the production of the Osceola plant, which includes the Freedom V-twin engine, will remain in the United States, citing the Spirit Lake, Iowa, facility as the new home for that engine’s manufacturing. Concerns were raised over the changes, as Polaris intends on opening a new factory in Mexico. The company contends that out-sourcing very specific components will allow for less expensive production over all, while the actual manufacturing of specifically the Victory Motorcycles line will remain entirely American.

The company has offered to keep Osceola employees retained until the transition to the new owner is complete, at which point they will be given their due severance benefits. The company also promised to work with the state’s Department of Labor in order to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible for both the corporation and its workers.
