About Us

Who We Are.

Livestock Equipment Canada is owned by the Gambriel family in Waterford, Ontario. We, (Curt and Laurie Gambriel), have been in the automotive repair and alternative fuels research industry for the last 25 years. Through that experience of being on the dealer side of many different distributors, we have become quite efficient at recognizing the sometimes subtle differences that differentiate quality merchandise and distributors.

Along the way, we have etched out a niche market in automotive repair supplying our clients with a “concierge type service” looking after all the details of owning an automobile including consultation services for new car purchases or insurance matters. We found many clients didn’t know what to do with their vehicles in various situations, so we provided them with the honest and straight answers they needed.

As our automotive concierge service grew, so did our children who soon became “horse people.” At first co-boarding horses at neighbouring farms, then, owning their own equine friends. This lead to the search for quality equine products like stalls, fencing, and other large items required when owning a horse or two, or three, then four… 😉

How We Got Here.

What we found was that while the west coast has access to high-quality equine handling products, we could not acquire much of the “good stuff” here in Eastern Canada. We experienced deficiencies in structural integrity as well as fit and finish in most of the products available to us. Most alarmingly, light materials and subpar welds were causing our gates to bend and even break!

Contacting the manufacturers with west coast distribution networks revealed a need for them to get their products to the east. Our entrepreneurial spirit kicked into high gear and we went to work to see if there was a solution to the problem. After some market research and analysis, we found no-one was operating in this niche. Canada East Supply & Distribution Co. was officially born.

We have now entered a new niche market and will bring the same honesty, integrity and eye for quality to livestock and agricultural equipment supply and distribution as we have with automotive repair. Canada East dealers can expect the same type of concierge experience with us as well; we handle the details and dealers handle the consumer sales with confidence.

As our website grew our business grew also. Very quickly we moved from being an Eastern distributer to a Canada wide distributer. We adapted, rebranded ourselves to Livestock Equipment Canada and continued to grow.
