Polaris buys Rigby-based KLIM

RIGBY, Idaho -

More jobs could be coming to our area.

KLIM Technical Riding Gear has been bought by snowmobile giant Polaris.

KLIM is expected to reach $30 million in sales for 2012.

Polaris will make the Rigby-based business its apparel headquarters, which means they're planning to expand.

"Going forward from today, we're going to have the opportunity to expand at our accelerated pace," said KLIM spokesman Jesse Ziegler.  "We're going to keep our growth up, and we're not going rely on our private funding issues."

Management is still not sure exactly how many jobs will be created.
