Granby, QC – PRINOTH and its dealer for the regions of Ontario and much of the USA, The Shop Industrial Inc. (TSI) are proud to announce an exclusive long-term agreement with the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). This agreement features the puchase of a large number of snow groomers over a period of 3 to 5 years.

PRINOTH and TSI are renowned for their innovative technology and extensive expertise in the trail grooming industry. The PRINOTH TROOPER was a significant part of the OFSC agreement as its ease of operation and performance features, including a roomy 5-passenger cab, allow it to be used by a vast majority of the OFSC's member clubs. PRINOTH's HUSKY trail groomer, in addition to being the most capable trail grooming solution, will be OFSC's most environmentally friendly groomer. The HUSKY not only offers a sifnificant increase in fule efficiency, but also features a 90% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, meeting stringent Tier 4 final exhaust emission standards set by the EPA, combined with state-of-the-art comfort features, ideal for the long work shifts OFSC's operators must accomplish. "We have worked hard with the OFSC to meet their requirements and both parties ended being very satisfied with this deal", said Martin Larichelière, PRINOTH Regional Manager of Eastern Canada.
