Arctic Cat Mini Bikes

A Brief History of the Marque

The son of first-generation Swedish immigrants, Edgar Hetteen (1920-2011) was raised on a farm in Minnesota. After service in WWII he established a business with his younger brother Allan Hetteen and David Johnson, who later became his brother-in-law.

The company was named Polaris Industries in 1954, and the first snow-mobiles appeared two years later. In 1960 Edgar led a group of three snowmobiles on a 1200 mile trek across Alaska. Later that year he left Polaris and established a new company, Arctic Cat.

The first Arctic Cat snowmobiles were produced in 1962-63.
