Retail co-op group to carry lineup, including all-new ATV
ARGO announced it has added Arctic Co-operatives Limited and its 32 locations to ARGO’s growing North American dealer network.
Arctic Co-operatives Limited is a service federation that is owned and controlled by 32 community-based co-operative business enterprises that are located in Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon. Independently owned and controlled by indigenous peoples of the Arctic, it operates retail facilities, hotels, cable operations, construction, outfitting, arts and crafts production and property rentals.
All 32 locations have committed to representing the ARGO XTV and ARGO Xplorer lines of off-road vehicles to serve the country’s sparsely-populated north.
“As a ‘Made in Canada’ brand with a rich, 50-year heritage of pushing the boundaries of extreme terrain, it’s about time we set up shop in Canada’s northernmost, rugged provinces and territories,” said Kevin Asselin, ARGO’s vice president of Sales & Marketing. “We are thrilled to be working with Arctic Co-operatives to make ARGO the go-to off-road vehicle of choice in Canada’s Arctic communities. Many of the people who live and work in our country’s far north often rely on ATVs and snowmobiles to get around, and given the ARGO’s incredible versatility in both extreme temperatures and terrains, we’re confident that the addition of Arctic Co-operatives is the right strategic partner in our drive to grow retail sales and reach new customers and markets.”
“We are delighted to be part of the ARGO XTV dealership family and look forward to getting the first few shipments of vehicles out to our various locations,” said Greg Litke, merchandizing coordinator for Arctic Co-operatives Ltd. “I’m sure there were will be many fans and adopters both from a recreational and commercial standpoint once people see what these incredible vehicles are capable of.”
