The lumber industry: Canada's heritage
Canada holds a wealth of natural resources in its forests, rivers and lakes. This wealth helps our country stand out on the world stage as a major lumber producer and exporter. The industry has grown since our grandparents’ time by optimizing and stimulating advancements in cutting technology.
The lumberjacks and log drivers of yesterday gave way to today’s chainsaws and felling heads.
Théo Turgeon, homegrown entrepreneur
Convinced the future was in the chainsaw, the story goes that Théo Turgeon sent a rather large cheque to get the attention of Oregon, a chainsaw manufacturer. This was the start of a close partnership that drove the company’s steady growth.
Théo Turgeon Équipement gradually added lawn and garden care equipment and parts to offer its authorized dealers a full catalogue. A forerunner in lithium-ion battery product distribution, the company was quick to fuel the technological shift to help its customers increase their market shares. Théo Turgeon Équipement is and always will be being a leader in meeting your IT, technical and logistics needs.
