Textron Specialized Vehicles
In 1954, in a one-room machine shop in Augusta, Georgia, the first Textron Specialized Vehicles products were born. Two brothers started with a simple belief that they could build a better golf car, that better met the customers' needs, than any other vehicle on the market.
Since those beginnings, the Textron Specialized Vehicles product line includes not only golf cars, but also ground support equipment for the aviation industry, industrial utility vehicles, and recreational side-by-side UTVs. The company has become a world leader in transportation and a leading global manufacturer of golf cars, side-by-sides, utility vehicles, personal transportation vehicles and aviation ground support equipment. We build thousands of vehicles each year, many of which featuring game-changing technology and innovations to improve vehicle efficiency and enhance the user experience like no other vehicle can. Today, Textron Specialized Vehicles includes brands that are leaders in the respective industries they serve -- Cushman®, E-Z-GO®, Arctic Cat®, Jacobsen®, Ransomes®, TUG™, Douglas™, Premier™, Safeaero™ and Textron Motors™.
Since 1960, the company has been part of Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT), a global multi-industry company headquartered in Providence, RI. A Fortune 500 company with more than 35,000 employees worldwide and operations in 25 countries, Textron is known for its powerful brands, including E-Z-GO, Cessna, Beechcraft, Hawker, Bell Helicopter, Greenlee, and Kautex, among others.
But more than 60 years after our first product was built in that one-room shop, there is still that single belief – that we exist to build vehicles and services that exceed customers' expectations, better than any other offering on the market. It is the drive to sustain and improve that position – to offer an unparalleled combination of world-class products, advanced technology, manufacturing expertise, and extraordinary service – that leads Textron Specialized Vehicles to cover new ground.
