Bombardier Inc. is a Canadian transportation manufacturer with a very interesting past. Its continuing ability to adapt to a changing industry has made it one of the biggest success stories of Canadian business. In the mid 1930’s Joseph-Armand Bombardier designed Canada’s first multi-passenger Snowmobile. This was an innovative and highly useful invention that was quickly adopted by businesses and public transportation companies all over Canada.

By the time Canada entered World War II, government restrictions and raw material rationing greatly hindered the sale of Bombardier’s snow mobile to private customers. Bombardier, adapting to emerging business demands shifted his attention from commercial transportation of private citizens to developing snowmobiles for military use. The company became even more profitable and was able to weather the financial storm of the Second World War.

After the war the company further expanded its boundaries and began developing snowmobiles that would hold 1-2 people. The Ski-doo was released to the public in 1959 and quickly became the world standard in lightweight snow transportation. Selling thousands of ski-doo’s each year, Bombardier Inc. quickly massed capital and began diversifying its product line again to realize the founder’s dreams of continual and diverse corporate growth.

Armand Bombardier died in 1964 leaving the company in the hands of his sons. Continuing in the shoes of their father, the Bombardier continued to expand their product line. By the mid 1980’s Bombardier Inc. had began investing heavily in the Aerospace and rail industries. The snowmobile division of Bombardier Inc. was sold in order to free up resources for its aerospace and railway technology. Bombardier Inc. is now one of the leading Canadian airplane and railcar manufacturers and continues to expand and grow every year. With clients all over the world, Bombardier Inc. has quickly become a fierce competitor in both its Aerospace and Railway divisions.
