Our story isn’t really about us…It’s about you getting to the jobsite, getting work done, and getting out of there. It’s a story that started back in 1955, when a man from Addicks, Texas, started building off-road equipment under the company name Applied Research and Development Company, or ARDCO, for short. His 4x4 buggies became so popular in the oil and gas industry that he set up shop in Lafayette, Louisiana, and expanded his operation. Eventually, ARDCO was purchased in 1989 by Pettibone Corporation, a leading manufacturer of material handling equipment, pipe and tire handling machines, railroad construction and maintenance machines, and rough-terrain forklifts. ARDCO’s headquarters remain in Lafayette, but production has been moved to Pettibone’s facility in Baraga, Michigan.
