Since 1965, CTE has been providing sales, service and parts to the Golf, Irrigation, Landscaping and Lawn & Garden Industries Now in its 50th year in business, Consolidated Turf Equipment (CTE) is uniquely positioned as a well-respected leader in the Turf industry with market penetration throughout Western Canada, a highly trained, experienced and motivated sales team and a large and loyal customer base. Our commitment to providing quality products and exceptional service is the primary reason for our longevity in the marketplace.
Originally started by Gordon Fogg and Bill Watson as a small business in Manitoba dedicated to distributing landscape and golf products, CTE quickly grew into a larger distribution house and expanded into additional markets. When Gordon’s son, Jim Fogg took over the day to day operations as the Vice President in the early 90’s, he continued to increase the number of brands available as well as expand into new markets and territories and eventually bought out his father Gordon and business partner Bill in the early 2000’s.
In early 2014, Jim sold CTE to his long-standing Sales Manager Shane Daerden and one of his colleagues Mr. Chris Beuchler. This new ownership team is committed to create continued growth, expand into new markets, and increase the CTE products offering. The company continues to evolve and grow with over 50 employees in 4 corporate offices, newly renovated showrooms in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and Edmonton, and short term expansion plans for new branches and sales staff in British Columbia.
CTE is currently a distributor for a multitude of products including: Club Car, Standard, Par Aide, Bayco, Vinyl Guard, Toro, Irritrol, NDS, Borgert, EdgePro, Vista Lighting, Structuron Tools, Paige Wire, Unique lighting, Stens, and Oregon, to name just a few CTE has been a Master Rain Bird Distributor in Manitoba for almost 20 years, in Saskatchewan for 19 years and in Alberta for approximately 16 years. Our commitment to every brand we carry is exemplified in both our supplier and customer relationships.
CTE is currently the exclusive Rain Bird Golf Distributor for Western Canada, and the authorized Maxicom distributor for their respective territory. Over the past several decades, CTE has been consistently honoured with Distributor of The Year Award’s from many of their suppliers.
