Polaris Industries makes snowmobiles and all terrain vehicles in its Roseau plant. It is the area's largest employer. After the dike broke in June 11, flood fighting efforts turned to saving Polaris, along with the school and hospital. The plant had only minor flood damage.

Polaris was also active in the flood fight, providing equipment and personnel. Polaris is now helping the community in recovery.
