Thunder Bay born and bred Bruce Hynnes founded Hood Logging Equipment in 1984 with 6 slashers and a parts and service department he ran out of his garage. Over the last 28 years Bruce has watch his fledging business grow to a 30 person operation servicing Central Canada from Alberta to Southern Ontario.
Bruce Hynnes Founded Hood Logging 28 years ago and is now proud to see his dream has grown into a 30 person operation.
With the addition of excavators in the early 90′s Hood has enjoyed substantial growth by expanding from primarily logging equipment and into the construction and mining industries. We now supply over a thousand companies across Central Canada and the Northern States. Hynnes believes that our ability to service such a diverse base of clientele is due in large part to the versatility of products in accommodating attachments. “Our customers often need an excavator with specific attachments,” says Hynnes. “Versatility is what our clients need and its what we deliver.”
In 2007 Hood Equipment partnered with the third-largest manufacturer of equipment in the world, TEREX, and sales of TEREX rock trucks and backhoe loaders took off! Today we provide rock truck rentals to customers from Southern Ontario to Northern Saskatchewan and are currently looking to expand our rental business nationally and internationally!
We are successful because of our great clients and because of that Hynnes says “If a potential customer comes into Hood equipment and is apprehensive, we just have them call one of our customers directly. When they hear first-hand how our products are accommodating their needs, it’s usually all the assurance they need.”
