How a company known for its innovation is changing the off-road landscape.
Textron Off Road might be the new kid on the block in the off-road industry, but its heritage and technology prowess run deep with Textron Inc. behind the brand.
Known worldwide for its powerful brands such as Bell® helicopters, Cessna® and Beechcraft®, Textron Inc. has a passion for innovation, performance and precision engineering. The $14.2 billion, multi-industry company serves customers in industries spanning aerospace and defense, specialized vehicles, turf care, fuel systems, and tools and testing equipment.
In 2010, Textron Inc. added off-road vehicles to its already impressive product offering with the purchase of Bad Boy Buggies and expanded further by adding Arctic Cat® in 2017.
