Comte Industries was founded in the early 1980`s by Alain Comte. The company manufactures Livestock Equipment and Hopper Bottom Cones. The cones are sold under Comte Industries Limited brand, while the Livestock Equipment is sold under Tuff Equipment brand. Alain Comte grew up on a mixed farm. Al was very inventive and he spent his spare time building and improving livestock handling systems that were used on the family farm. Neighbors were so impressed with Al`s equipments that they wanted it for their own farms. In 1982 a production line was set up in the farm shop. In 1985 the farm shop had to be doubled in size to meet the growing demand.
