Meanwhile, BRP’s Juarez 1 facility assembles Can-Am ATVs and began assembling Can-Am Ryker 3WVs in 2018.
But the company stopped assembling SSVs at this facility during the second quarter of fiscal 2021 (ended January 31).

All Company facilities are owned by the Company, except the Juárez 2, Querétaro and Rovaniemi (Finland) plants, which are leased.
BRP’s origins date back to 1937, when founder Joseph-Armand Bombardier obtained his first patent for a tracked vehicle used to travel on snow.
In 1959, the company gave birth to the recreational snowmobile by introducing the first single-track two-passenger lightweight snowmobile under the Ski-Doo brand.
Then, in May 2020, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, BRP announced that it reoriented its marine business by focusing on growing its vessel brands with new technology and innovative marine products, and discontinuing production of engines outside of overboard Evinrude E-TEC at its facility in Sturtevant (United States), whose facility is being reused for new projects.
In an effort to consolidate Alumacraft’s operations into one site, BRP’s facilities in Arkadelphia (United States) have also been closed and its operations are being transferred to the company’s facilities in St. Peter (United States).
