BRP has announced that the modernization of its Valcourt, Quebec manufacturing facility that is responsible assembling Ski-Doo snowmobiles and the Can-Am Spyder, is now complete.
This is part of a $118 million investment into the facility in five years, with three of those years now complete. The new modern assembly process allows BRP to build both the Spyder and Ski-Doo snowmobiles on the same line, as well as personalize each individual unit. They can also now build more units in less time.
Design is also helped, as the new assembly process allows for design and engineering to work closely together from start to finish on a project.
“Valcourt has always been at the heart of BRP’s innovation and modernizing the plant was critical to ensuring its efficiency,” said José Boisjoli, President and CEO. “It’s the combination of small-town support with world class know-how that puts us in such a unique position: updating our facilities with a major investment like this means we are not only providing state-of-the-art tools and technologies to our local workers, but we are being more efficient, more productive and more innovative than ever.”
