BRP Finland intends to move into a new snowmobile manufacturing facility by December 2008. With the cooperation of Rovaniemi's city council and upon satisfactory conclusion of contract negotiations, BRP will sign a 15-year lease and invest 7 million euros (about $9.4 million) in new equipment and machinery.
Construction of the new roughly 200,000-square-feet facility is estimated to begin fall of this year. The building will regroup BRP Finland’s distribution center, assembly and fabrication lines, logistic center and R&D functions.
