The company made their first snowmobile in 1960 and in 1970, started the Boss Cat line. Various boat manufacturers, including Silver Line, Lund and Spirit Marine, were bought to attempt to expand the company. However, Arctic Cat went bankrupt in 1982. Two years later, a new company Arctco was created to continue the production of Arctic Cat snowmobiles. The company was successful in keeping the Arctic Cat alive and in 1996 the company changed its name to Arctic Cat. The company continues to make snowmobiles as well as all terrain vehicles and side by sides. Over the years, the company has attempted many other product lines including snowblowers, generators, mini bikes, and two wheel drive vehicles. Arctic Cat relocated its headquarters, certain corporate executives, general managers, and sales and marketing personnel to Plymouth MN from Thief River Falls in 2007. In 2016, the headquarters was relocated again to a more prominent location in downtown Minneapolis. Also in 2016, most of the ATV/UTV engineering was moved to St. Cloud, MN, in the same facility that produces the Arctic Cat engines.
