Bombardier is a Canadian aerospace and railway producer. The company has 66,000 employees at sites across the globe with headquarters in Montreal, Quebec.

History

Joseph-Armand Bombardier, a young mechanic in rural Quebec, produced a vehicle that could travel across the local snow-covered terrain. He launched the seven-passenger B7 snowmobile in 1937. He founded L’Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée in 1942 to manufacture his 12-passenger B12 snowmobile. He later grew the business by introducing a number of different vehicles that accomplished different tasks. In 1959, he introduced the Ski-Doo, a personal snowmobile that became tremendously popular.[1]

In 1970, Bombardier acquired Lohnerwerke of Vienna, Austria, whose product line included trams. Four years later, the Commission de transport de la communauté urbaine de Montréal awarded Bombardier the contract to manufacture 423 new cars for the Montréal Métro.[1] Bombardier would eventually be awarded contracts from New York, Boston, and Toronto.
