Company History

1964

Jean's Diesel Shop was founded by Suzanne and Mauril Jean. The company operated in a 2,500 sqft garage. They only performed mechanic on trucks and smaller equipment. A couple years later, they became a dealer for Tree Farmer skidders. It was at this time that they began to do mechanic on other equipment of this type.

1967

A stock room of 800 sqft is added to the garage to be able to sell parts and have offices.

1974

The size of the garage was doubled to approximately 7,000 sqft. The garage was updated and now had a greater working capacity.

1978

Jean's Diesel Shop became a dealer for Timberjack skidders which were now really popular.

1988

An extension was added to the garage to make a machine shop.

1996

Suzanne and Mauril's son, Yvon Jean, become a partner in the company after Mauril's death.

1998

A new modern 3,500 sqft garage was added to be able to continue repairing Timberjack loggers and skidders which have doubled, and even tripled, in size and weight.

2000

Jean's Diesel Shop becomes a TEPS dealer for Caterpillar's forestry pieces with Toromont.

2022

Two additions were made to the existing shop; an addition of 2,460 sqft which contains new offices, a new lunchroom and some new washrooms. It also allows us to enlarge our already existing parts room. The second one is of 1,970 sqft, in the garage; it creates more space for our mechanics, and allows us to enter a bigger quantity, and larger equipment in our shop. It will also allow us to add more cranes, which will help the mechanics in doing their job.

2024

As of today, Jean's Diesel Shop repairs forestry machinery, performs welding and is equipped with a machine shop. We are also equipped with a plasma cutting table and service trucks to work on site.
