Key moments in our adventure
The date is 1937. The place is the small, hilly town of Valcourt, Quebec, Canada. Joseph-Armand Bombardier is granted a patent for the first ever vehicle that can travel on snow, developed in his garage, thanks to his determination and daring.
In 1942, with the production of a second, larger vehicle, he founds his own company: L’Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée.
Over the years, J.-A. Bombardier refines his design, and launches the Ski-Doo in 1959. With this innovative product comes the birth of a new sport.
Fast forward to 2003. BRP becomes an independent company, maintaining the adventurous and innovative spirit of its founder. Still headquartered in Valcourt, Quebec, BRP has been enabling unforgettable experiences for our customers for decades through our impressive portfolio of products.
