PRINOTH is pleased to announce that ARDCO Equipment, located in Lafayette, LA, just joined the PRINOTH team as dealer for the state of Louisiana. They will represent PRINOTH for the entire PANTHER line-up as well as the TROOPER.

ARDCO which stands for Applied Research & Development Company, was founded in 1955 in Addicks, Texas where it started engineering and manufacturing 4x4 off-road buggies for the oil and gas industry. As the company expanded they opened a facility in Lafayette, Louisiana. In 1989, ARDCO was purchased by the Pettibone Corporation and consolidated its rental and service facility in Lafayette and manufacturing in Baraga, Michigan where Pettibone is also manufactured. To meet the growing demands for off-road equipment in Louisiana, ARDCO recently started a new equipment dealership division “ARDCO Equipment” to offer a wider variety of machines. ARDCO Equipment currently sells, rents and leases equipment for the construction, agricultural, utility, forestry, material handling and oil and gas industries at their new facility in New Iberia, Louisiana.

“Our dealer network is growing and we're excited to welcome ARDCO Equipment on board,” said Doug Little, Director of Tracked Vehicles Sales at PRINOTH. He added: “Louisiana is a natural market for tracked carriers. With their peculiar soils and wet lands, our products will without a doubt attract interest for all types of projects in the state of Louisiana.”

The PRINOTH team would like to welcome ARDCO Equipment and wish them much success with its product lines.

The Outcome of Years of Innovation

Innovation is at the heart of PRINOTH's mission and vision. The company strives to always go further, and to create new generations of vehicles that fit the needs, realities and eco responsibilities of each of its customers. PRINOTH's expertise in building utility vehicles and other machinery such as snow groomers has translated into designing the efficient and powerful PANTHER carriers. One of the unique aspects of this type of soundly engineered vehicle is the advantage of extremely low ground pressure. PRINOTH vehicles offer optimal contact with the terrain, yet only gently touch the ground. This means that crews can access hard-to-reach work sites while benefiting from the smoothest ride imaginable. In the early 2000s, our ongoing quest to provide optimal performance, flexibility, reliability and safety to all trades lead to the creation of the PANTHER series.
