BRP opens a new plant in Sherbrooke

Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) will assemble specialized motorised vehicles derived from its line of products in a new plant located in Sherbrooke.

This facility will concentrate on assembling customized vehicles to meet the requirements of governments, municipalities, institutions and agencies as well as individual consumers.

The new assembly plant, located in Sherbrooke Regional Industrial Park, will create 20 new jobs in Sherbrooke and will grow according to demand.

Zero-emission vehicles

The plant will start by assembling gasoline-powered vehicles with specific requirements and intends to eventually use the technologies developed at the Centre de technologies avancées BRP-University de Sherbrooke (CTA) to produce zero-emission electric vehicles.

Among other vehicles produced and assembled in this new plant is the Can Am Commander electric side-by-side vehicle, which should be available for sale in July 2012.
