Bobcat Company and Polaris Industries Inc. have announced a long-term strategic alliance that will leverage the complementary strengths of both companies to penetrate work-related market segments globally.

The alliance will include co-development of work vehicles, supply of highly differentiated work vehicles and technology sharing, with a planned launch by the second half of 2010.

Polaris will produce and sell highly differentiated work vehicles to Bobcat for sale through the Bobcat dealer network. The cooperative efforts will expand thereafter to include co-developed vehicles for both Polaris and Bobcat, and further technology-sharing.

“We are combining the strengths of the number-one compact construction equipment manufacturer with those of the number-one off-road vehicle manufacturer to deliver innovative product solutions for our customers,” says Richard Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Americas.
