Farmer from a young age, Armand Landry becomes entrepreneur in 1966 as a forestry trucking contractor. In 1976, he founded A.L.P.A. Equipment Ltd. to meet the growing demand for parts and services to support the forest industry. Over the years, the company with its head office in Balmoral New Brunswick, has grown and now operates four locations, three in New Brunswick (Balmoral, Fredericton, and Edmundston), and one in Nova Scotia (Truro). The rapid growth of the company assisted in becoming one of the largest dealers of forestry and construction equipment in eastern Canada. The Company’s reputation as a family business allows it to keep a personal approach while being very professional.
The Landry family continues to progress and put forward new projects as seen with the addition of its associated company A. Landry Fabrication which specializes in the manufacturing and assembly of heavy machinery and OEM accessories since 1998. This new addition has quickly been able to make a world-class impact on the industry with the design, development and production of a new tracked harvester, amazingly economical and fuel efficient: the Landrich.
Today, A.L.P.A. Equipment Ltd. offers a variety of forestry and construction equipment in addition to providing a full scale parts and service department with an exceptional after-sales support. Quick reaction time and adaptation to the challenges of its customer base is the A.L.P.A. advantage. The implementation of tailored solutions by the A.L.P.A. Equipment Ltd. team is its trademark giving it an enviable and favorable position in the industry. The trust and respect of its clients are at the heart of the company’s corporate values.
