Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP), once the powersports subsidiary of Canada’s Bombardier, Inc., was founded in 1942 in Valcourt, Quebec by the man whom many call the “Father of the Snowmobile”, Joseph-Armand Bombardier. Two decades prior to the foundation of BRP, Joseph-Armand Bombardier had experimented with a propeller-driven snow vehicle that was heavily influenced by the Russian aerosanis. After Bombardier had established themselves with their popular series of snowmobiles, the company ventured into the world of off-road racing in the 1970s with their Can-Am brand of motocross racing motorcycles. Despite the on-track success of the Can-Am racing motorcycles, the brand was shut down in 1987. Ten years later, BRP used their knowledge and experiences from off-road racing to develop their first ATV prototype called the Traxter. The Traxter was a revolutionary machine for Bombardier Recreational Products and it helped the company earn ATV Of the Year honors in 1998. BRP rode on the success of the Traxter for a few more years until the debut of their first sport ATV, the DS650, in 2001. Soon, the Traxter and the DS 650 were joined by the DS 50, DS 650 Baja, DS 90, Quest 500 4X4, and the Quest 650 and Quest 650 XT. In 2006, the model that is, perhaps, the most important to BRP’s history was created: the Outlander 800. The Outlander 800 took home numerous accolades and prestigious off-road racing victories for Bombardier, including the death-defying Dakar Rally and the GNCC Racing Series Championship in October 2006. In recognition of the Outlander 800’s racing victories, BRP’s ATV division renamed themselves as Can-Am and Can-Am ATVs sit among world’s top 10 leading manufacturers and most popular brands with riders and off-road motorsport enthusiasts.
Dayco Products is a supplier of automotive, construction, and industrial parts. In 1905, Dayco (then known as Dayton Rubber Manufacturing Co.) got its start making garden hoses out of natural rubber before creating the innovative airless tire and the first whitewall tires which were popular luxury items on horse-drawn carriages in the early 1900s and on premium American full-size cars during the 1950s through to the 70s. Dayco came to be known as an innovator of rubber products and eventually pioneered the use of synthetic rubber for tires.
