Polaris Manufacturing Center

At the Manufacturing Center, students explore the industry of vehicle design by using computer software to produce safe, effect vehicles for both business and personal use. Employees learn terms related to vehicle operation, and practice what they have learned by driving a remote ATV over/through various landscapes. Customers can purchase inflatable tires, pop tubes, and custom manufactured buttons (debit cards only).
