Hi, I'm Gary Gustafson. I cut my teeth in the powersports industry handling electrical design and general problem solving on the engineering teams that launched the Polaris Ranger and Polaris Sportsman lines in the 1990s. I started at Polaris when there were just 2 assembly lines -- 1 for snowmobiles and 1 for ATVs. Victory and Indian Motorcycles weren't on anyone's radar yet, there were no Spirit Lake or Wyoming plants, and management hoped that they might sell 5,000 to 10,000 Rangers per year some day, something that was accomplished when we launched the second platform. From there I switched to serving as an Electrical Engineering Supervisor for Arctic Cat snowmobiles. While working for these companies in Northern Minnesota I developed a real passion for the experiences that powersports vehicles can give us. After spending 13 years at market leaders Polaris and Arctic Cat, I established G-Force Consulting in 2005 in response to an overwhelming need for consulting help in the Powersports manufacturing marketplace. There is enormous risk and reward for new powersports product entries, and I help steer programs so they are profitable. Many companies do not survive their mistakes, but there is no longer a need for enterprises to learn everything "the hard way". I've contributed marketing strategy and engineering insight towards dozens of new powersports product line launches. Most start-up enterprises are strong in some areas but lack knowledge or experience in others, hiring me will give a temporary boost in those weak areas.

Working with G-Force Consulting is an investment. I sell time-to-market-success. Before partnering, we will mutually understand what the potential return on investment will be--whether it means a bulletproof yet innovative product, an energized sales channel, or a successful multi-mode launch. Your enterprise needs to gain a high rate of return on consulting services, and you can acquire substantial expertise that can be put into action quickly with G-Force Consulting.
I have 21 years of experience in the world of motorized vehicles spanning an exceptionally broad spectrum. It's been a great ride and I would love to share some stories with you. As President of G-Force Consulting, I have enjoyed success in business consulting for companies including Continental Automotive, E-Z-GO, Borg Warner, Heat Demons, Yuasa and literally dozens more. I've authored hundreds of industry-specific articles, contributed to a number of game-changing ATV and Snowmobile development programs, increased advertising revenues by more than 100% for various outdoors publications, been a pioneer in the electric and Hybrid UTV industry, and advised on the acquisitions and start-ups of approximately 27 (and counting) powersports OEMs and Suppliers. I specialize in component market research and I offer industry-leading component reports on batteries, traction motors, lighting and much more.
I hold two United States Patents----#7,002,454 and #7,278,511 with a third pending. I am a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers and the Motorcycle Industry Council. Thanks for reading, and stay in touch.
