      • remember most winter equipment is stocked @ retail distribution in summer or beginning fall so unfortunately most likely ARTW did not see this coming. For sure Canada will become an important distribution point for ARTW in future. Key is having equipment on hand to sell vice versa snow blowers on hand to sell in the States. Entry point for ARTW into Canada was warm winters and lack equipment sales in Canada of snow blowers. Previous owner had more profitable steel structure business. Though Canada may take awhile to perform it will be successful more so if ARTW can move into Western Canada where the large farms are located. ARTW obtained sales staff in Canada, new product (snow blowers) and a small warehouse/mfg plant with a credible manager whom ARTW had relationship for years.
