Our History

Ernie Abel
Equipment Journal - 1966 Logo

The year was 1966...

Reflecting a nation on the verge of developing as never before, the Canadian construction equipment industry was facing unprecedented growth opportunities. E.E. (Ernie) Abel could see this, and what you read today is proof of his vision.

Ernie Abel founded Equipment Journal in 1966 and, four decades later, his idea continues to provide Canada's sellers, buyers, users and makers of equipment with the advertising and news they require to prosper in today's business world.

Be it in print, or on-line, Equipment Journal remains steadfastly where it has always been. Walk into the office of a contractor or a dealer, and where is Equipment Journal? It's on the buyer's desk, or on his computer screen, not just sitting idly in the company's lobby. The consistency and dedication of the late Ernie Abel, who continued to set the path for his company well into his 80s, is true legacy.
