WELCOME TO CARRIÈRE & POIRIER EQUIPMENT
Before we get ahead of ourselves, we want to welcome you to Carrière & Poirier Equipment. While nothing can replace on-the-lot experience.
A family owned business since then, it was founded by our grandfather, René Carrière as a Massey Ferguson dealership for the farming community of the Prescott & Russell counties. Called the tractor years, he was able to convince farmers to go more mechanical & equiped themselves with better tractors & implements.
In 1966, his daughter Monique and future son in law André Poirier (our parents) joined him and started a sales team that gave this dealership many top honors as one of the best volume dealership in Ontario for Massey Ferguson.
But with the oil crises in the U.S. and a diminishing demand worldwide and locally for farm tractors & implements, the company had to find a new line that would cover a bigger base of customers. The year was 1978 and Kubota was the answer. With only 3 different models available at that time, these compact 4 wheel drive units were appealing to homeowners that were dreaming of owning a small tractor that could do chores around the house and field.
