Taylor-Dunn Manufacturing celebrated the expansion of their manufacturing capabilities to include the Polaris GEM® product line on Friday, December 8, 2017.
Taylor-Dunn® was founded in Anaheim, CA in 1951 and has been producing electric vehicles for industrial and commercial use in this location ever since. In 2016, TaylorDunn® was purchased by Polaris Industries®, the leading power sports manufacturer with products that include the RZR®, Ranger®, Indian Motorcycles® and GEM® Electric Vehicles.
With the vision of creating a center ofexcellence forelectric vehicle production, GEM® production was transferred from Milford, Iowa to Anaheim. Anaheim will now produce the majority of Polaris electric vehicles and will be the engineering and production center for Polaris’ electric vehicle effort.
“We are proud and excited to welcome the GEM® product to Anaheim and look forward to bringing the strength of these two brands together to create improved vehicles and capabilities to our customers” said John Stockman, Vice President and General Manager of Polaris’ Commercial and Government business in North America.
Polaris® is making significant investments in the Anaheim facility. The most recent improvements include additional painting, welding and material management capabilities. The Anaheim facility currently employs over 250 people.
