Canada Awards Standing Offers to Polaris for Off-Road Vehicles
Minneapolis – December 14, 2020 – Polaris has been awarded three national master standing offers (NMSOs) from Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) to sell snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and utility side-by-side vehicles. Canadian federal government departments, agencies or Crown corporations as well as identified Municipal, Academic Institutions, Schools and Hospital Sectors (MASH) all have access to repeatedly purchase these Polaris off-road vehicles at pre-negotiated prices, terms and conditions as needed. Winnipeg-based Polaris Industries LTD, a subsidiary of global powersports leader Polaris Inc. (NYSE: PII), won the competitive tenders and will support the vehicles with warranty and service work leveraging identified, in-country dealers.
Polaris off-road vehicles available on the one-year NMSO contracts – RANGER utility vehicles, Sportsman ATVs and snowmobiles – augment current vehicle fleets and maximize productivity. These vehicles can access off-road locations where cars, trucks or vans cannot operate. They also are a budget-friendly alternative to full-size vehicles, as are the maintenance, parts, and repair costs. In addition to vehicles Polaris will provide vehicle accessories, such as cabs, heaters, special lighting, snow tracks and snow blades, horns and winches. With factory-certified dealers strategically located in Canada, Polaris offers convenient service options throughout the country.
