The Plan Nord Program Creates Investments

With the growth of the mining sector in Abitibi Temiscamingue and northern Quebec, Machinerie St-Pierre of Val d’Or, Quebec, has decided to increase its offering the mining exploration and forestry sectors in these areas. In order to sustain such growth, Machinerie St-Pierre, in business for 27 years in Val-d’Or, has joined the PRINOTH distributors’ network of utility vehicles last March.

Machinerie St-Pierre offers a range of products such as the new Panther T8, the Go-Tract 2000, 3000 and 4500 carriers as well as the Trooper for the personnel transportation. Following such growth, Machinerie St-Pierre is proud to take the lead and is expanding with the acquisition of land in Val d’Or and the construction of a new distribution and industrial equipments rental center.

PRINOTH, with its North American headquarters located in Granby, Quebec. specializes in the manufacturing of tracked utility vehicles. The company has recently launched a brand new vehicle, the Panther T8, a direct evolution from the legendary Muskeg and Go-Tract 1600. Mr. St-Pierre, president of Machinerie St-Pierre says: "The PRINOTH Panther T8 has enabled us to meet the demands of our customers regarding crawler carriers. It is also equipped with the latest industry requirements related to safety."

The new PRINOTH tracked utility vehicle offers an increased performance due to its 225 hp Caterpillar engine combined with its superior off-road capacity in the crawler carrier market. The Panther T8, an innovative crawler carrier, is designed, manufactured and assembled in the Province of Quebec, for a changing and extreme climate like ours. With the Panther T8 distribution, Machinerie St-Pierre improves its offering to the marketplace and remains competitive.

The Panther T8 dominates the market due to its low ground pressure allowing it to work in remote areas, in all seasons, whatever the nature of the soil. With its 8 t payload capacity, the vehicle ensures efficient work without compromise.

"Having Caterpillar engines in PRINOTH vehicles is a guarantee of quality and peace of mind reliability” concluded Mr. St-Pierre.
The performance of the new PRINOTH tracked utility vehicle is truly amazing. The Panther’s very low ground pressure prevents the vehicle from sinking into muddy soil even at maximum payload. With this optimal weight distribution over the frame, the Panther is very versatile, suiting not only the mining and construction sectors but the oil and gas and forestry sectors as well by carrying excavators and cranes. The versatility of the Panther T8 makes it the right tool for all types of off-road work.
