An Arctic Cat buff since the early days, Bruce is a wealth of knowledge for our store from mechanical to sales he does it all! Bruce has been with us since we became an authorized Arctic Cat dealer in 1984 and is the foundation of our store. He has been an accomplished racer from grass drags, cross country racing, watercrosss, and ashpalt racing, and assisting many of our local racers in sno-cross racing from mechanical needs to driving and training advice. Bruce has attended numerous technical training courses over the years with Arctic Cat from snowmobile, atv, utv, and side by sides and has become an accomplished cat master technician many, many times. He has also won many awards over the years and has helped our store gain national attention from being the 2016 IASC dealer of the year, and a few times before that, to many awards won at the Arctic Cat dealer shows, and much more. Bruce Koop is the man when it comes to Arctic Cat, we are proud to have him be a part of the team here at Route 12 Arctic Cat!

Jim has been with us for over 18 years and has gained a wealth of knowledge while working with Bruce, and others here at Route 12 Arctic Cat. He has attended many service schools from snowmobile, atv, and side by sides, and has been an accomplished cat master technician. Jim has some racing experience in his background from local and regional sno-cross events in his early days with Route 12 Arctic Cat. He always carries a "can-do" attitude with him no matter what the challenge, from tearing a machine down to nothing and rebuilding it completely, to helping with showroom design, and product ordering. Having Jim as our lead technician has helped us gain national recognition from such awards as the IASC dealer of the year, and the many awards we have achieved at the Arctic Cat dealer meetings. We are proud the have Jim as a lead part of the team here at Route 12 Arctic Cat!
