OUR HISTORY

Bourgault Tillage Tools Ltd. is located in the small industrious and agricultural community of St. Brieux in North Central Saskatchewan (Western Canada).

Originally part of F.P. Bourgault Industries Ltd., our history goes back 50 years…

1969
President & Co-General Manager, Joseph Bourgault, started working alongside his father, Frank Bourgault, as a grease monkey when he was 13 years old as Frank invented the Bourgault 4 Row Series Multi-Purpose cultivator.

1980-1981
F.P. Bourgault Industries Ltd. expanded into air seeding technology in the same year that the new Bourgault 5 Row Series Multi-Purpose cultivator was developed. At the time, the Bourgault 4 Row and 5 Row Series Cultivators were regarded as high precision tillage and seeding implements.

1986-1988
The development of ground engaging tools began for Bourgault Industries – Cultivator Division Ltd. with the introduction of the first Bourgault Parallel Wing sweeps in 1988.

1991
Bourgault Industries – Cultivator Division Ltd. sold the large equipment product line to the Bourgault Industries – Air Seeder Division Ltd.

1991 (May)
F.P. Bourgault Tillage Tools Ltd. was established as an independent business with separate ownership and management from Bourgault Industries Ltd. and became the main provider of tillage tools for Bourgault Cultivator Line while simultaneously producing tillage tools for other OEM equipment lines.

Present Day
Since its formation in 1991, BTT has greatly expanded its product lines and market area, becoming a world leader in field opener technology, manufacturing ground engaging tools (not the equipment they go on) with product lines that include a wide range for tillage, seeding and fertilizing applications.

BTT is also a leader in various technologies for in-crop weed control for both conventional farmers and organic farmers.
