Snowmobiles were used in rural Quebec to take children to school, carry freight, deliver mail, and as ambulances. His invention filled a very particular need in the region and soon business was booming. Then a major setback hit the growing business: Bombardier customers had to prove that snowmobiles were essential to their livelihood in order to buy one.
To keep his business going, Armand shifted his focus and developed vehicles for the military. After the war, Bombardier experienced another setback in his snowmobile business.
Armand Bombardier therefore decided to diversify his business, first by producing tracked snowplows sized specifically for use on municipal sidewalks replacing horse-drawn vehiclesthen by making all-terrain vehicles for the miningoil, and forestry industries.
Production of these machines evolved over time. Duringthe wooden bodies were replaced with sheet steel and these vehicles were powered by Chrysler flathead six-cylinder engines and 3-speed manual transmissions. Following these changes came the switchover to more reliable Chrysler Industrial engines with the automatic Loadflite transmissions.
Production of these machines continued into the mids. In the early s, Armand set aside his dream to focus on developing his company's other tracked vehicles, but by the end of the decade, smaller, more efficient engines had been developed and were starting to come onto the market.
Bombardier resumed his efforts to build a "miniature" snowmobile. He worked alongside his eldest son Germain, who shared his father's mechanical talents. Armand and Germain developed several prototypes of the lightweight snowmobile and finally, the first Bombardier snowmobile went on sale in By an accident, a painter misinterpreted the name and painted "Ski-Doo" on the first prototype.
Suddenly, a new winter sport was born, centred in Quebec. But Armand was reluctant to focus too much on the Ski-Doo and move resources away from his all-terrain vehicles.
He vividly remembered his earlier business setbacks that forced him to diversify. Armand slowed down promotion of the Ski-Doo line to prevent it from dominating the other company products, while still allowing him to dominate the snowmobile industry. The snowmobiles produced were of exceptional quality and performance, earning a better reputation than the rival Polaris and Arctic Cat brand of motosleds.
He left behind a thriving business, but also one that had been focused on one person. Armand dominated his company, overseeing all areas of operation. He controlled the small research department, making all the drawings himself. The younger generation took over, led by Armand's sons and sons-in-law.
The young team reorganized and decentralized the company, adopting modern business tactics. The company adopted the latest technological innovation—the computer—to handle inventory, accounts, and billing. Distribution networks were improved and increased, and an incentive program was developed for sales staff.
